A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example 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 single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use some feature that isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting package we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can pick 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 amount of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable 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. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any one of them easily.
