A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Every cloud web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
