A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils aside from the main school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use cloud web hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single place along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing much easier. No matter the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain name within the account.
