A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use some feature that's not provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Using our cloud hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single location along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages do not have a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up customized 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 such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area by using instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage every single one of them effortlessly.
