A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number 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
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage statistics via fast access buttons.
