A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting plan that we supply will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep track of all of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
