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" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting package we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep track of them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it's going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and handle them. With quick access links, you'll be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
