A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the main school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Each and every cloud website hosting plan which we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep an eye on them all. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have lots of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
