A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different sites that are related in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to create many subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up 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 can even access the website files or view logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
