A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the primary school site. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Each cloud web hosting plan which we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly monitor every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
