A subdomain is 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 given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use some feature which isn't 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. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain address is added, it requires 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control any of them easily.
