A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school site. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing simpler. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You will also have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we haven't limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain within the account.
