A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example 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". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if 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 Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will enable you to set up many subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create 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 more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any one of them with ease.
