A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
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 have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can also access the website files or view logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
