A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, 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 through a different company if you want to use a feature that's not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one location along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their managing a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. You will also have access to many functions for any of them with only a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain name inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated servers because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
