A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as 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". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single spot together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their administration easier. No matter the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to many functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we have not limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain name inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any of them with ease.
