A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example 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 could have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which isn't provided 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 customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only one domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder in the account that it will open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access many functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not have a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any of them effortlessly.
