A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use some feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans don't have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
