A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, 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 web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature which isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if 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 Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will enable you to set up many subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not 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 wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and manage them. Using quick access links, you'll be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
