A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you need to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Each cloud website hosting package which we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep an eye on them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our semi-dedicated servers since we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you can 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 huge amount of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
