A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school website. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to 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 restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
