A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you need to use some feature that's not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They'll all 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 very easily keep an eye on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the site files or view logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
