A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a feature that is not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting packages will permit you to create numerous subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
