A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, 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". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with just a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their managing simpler. No matter the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain address inside the account.
