A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the main school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting plan that we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep an eye on all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can select from - define 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. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.

For your convenience, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them.
