A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use a feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Every single cloud website hosting package that we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated plans because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety 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 offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the site files or view logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
