A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one location along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. Whatever the plan that you choose, you'll 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 very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans because we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you'll be able to access a variety 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 provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage stats via fast access buttons.
