A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it takes 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area using instant access buttons.
