A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every cloud hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily monitor all of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
