A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance 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". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to 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 will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one 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 total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle any one of them effortlessly.
