A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use some feature which isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to set up many subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any problem. If the main domain name is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select 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, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view 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 one 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 in the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them easily.
