A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use cloud website hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them with ease.
