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 since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current provider. One 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 even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any one of them easily.
