A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the primary school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use cloud web hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single place along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their administration simpler. Whatever the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain address within the account.
