A subdomain is a 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 given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create numerous subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom 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 quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the web site files or view logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
