A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature which isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single location together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain address in the account.
