Elementor Cloud Subdomain

Elementor Cloud Subdomain – Everything You Should Know

One of the most challenging parts of launching an online presence is figuring out what web hosting you’ll need. So many choices, yet each is unique in terms of price and characteristics. Because you have limited time to get your website up and running, how do you choose amongst the several design options? Here, we will talk about the Elementor Cloud Sub Domain. 

First, what is a subdomain? 

A subdomain is an extension to your primary domain name. Subdomains are used to organize and browse your website’s various sections. On your primary domain, you can have several subdomains or child domains.

It’s essential to think of a subdomain name that best reflects the section of the website you’re assigning. Choosing a name for this part of your site doesn’t have to be complicated. Try to keep it to one word if you can. Your URL will still appear clean and familiar to your visitors, even with the additional name.

Is a license required for your subdomain?

Yes, each subdomain requires a license unless it is one of the few Elementor-recognized staging subdomains. Subdomains that do not require a license include: local.* ( test.* ( staging.* ( (

You have a limited number of licenses to connect to Elementor sites as an Elementor Pro user. You can now create a dedicated staging subdomain with one of the names listed below. 

For example, if your site is, then using is not a license use:

TLDs (Top-level Domains) that do not require a license:

  • *.dev (
  • *.local (example.local)
  • *.staging (example.staging)
  • *.test (example.test)
  • *.example (example.example)
  • *.invalid (example.invalid)

Subdomains that do not require a license:

  • dev* (
  • local* (
  • test* (
  • staging* (

This allows you to install the most recent versions, try out new features, and test the functionality of your site before making changes to your live site.

Note: If you already have an activation, you must detach and rejoin to alter your current activation count. 

Adding a custom domain to Elementor Cloud Websites

A domain name must be registered with a third party to use a custom domain on your Elementor Cloud Website. When done, it’ll automatically be linked to your Elementor Cloud website.

How to connect your domain
