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 Web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school website. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every single cloud hosting package that we supply will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.
