A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school site. If you work with 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 secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it takes 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
