A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use some feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting package from us, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their number, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder within the account that it's going to open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to gain access to many functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety 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 available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the site files or view logs and usage statistics via instant access buttons.
