A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, 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 subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that's not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to create countless subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain is added, it takes two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized 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 convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number 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 Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
