A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you need to use some feature that is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Through our cloud web hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their administration easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a set limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting CP and during the process you can select 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 as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area via fast access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
