A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting plan which we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unlimited.

To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. Using quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
