A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to create 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 more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
