A subdomain is part of a web address which is 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 just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you need to use a specific feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will allow you to set up many subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site 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 wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable 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 - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
