A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use a feature that is not provided by your current service provider. An 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. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting package that we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the website files or check out logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
