A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that is not provided 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 clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one spot together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their administration easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to many functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated servers because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick 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, plus much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you'll 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 even access the web site files or view logs and usage stats via quick access buttons.
