A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single location together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing simpler. Whatever the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated servers since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with 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 available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics through instant access buttons.
