A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you need to use some feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
