A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part 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 through a different company if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Using our cloud hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management simpler. Whatever the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the web site files or see logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
