A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as 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 web site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting package we provide will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Through quick access links, you'll be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
