A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients 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 risk 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 case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create 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 quick access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount 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 Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated services as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a variety 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, plus much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the website files or view logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
