A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school website. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting plan that we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor them all. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.
