A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use a feature that is 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 acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will enable you to set up many subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a set limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control every single one of them with ease.
