A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a feature which is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can also access the web site files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
