A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. As an illustration, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the primary school website. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every single cloud hosting plan we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep track of them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is completely up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
