A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you acquire a cloud website hosting package through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It's going to take a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you are going to be able to add unique error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have in the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and control all of them without difficulty. Through instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or check logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
