A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as 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". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will enable you to create many subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it requires 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom 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 convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans do not have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any of them with ease.
