A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting plan that we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep an eye on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a set limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to 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 rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section via instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any one of them easily.
