A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use some feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability 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 of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting package which we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly keep track of all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

All subdomains you've got inside the account will be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you're going to be able to see and handle all of them with ease. Through quick access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager area or check logs, visitor stats and other information about any one of your subdomains.
