A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very practical if you want to have different sites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use cloud web hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. No matter the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain name in the account.
