A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use some feature that's not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will enable you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain name is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
