A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting package we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep an eye on all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the site files or view logs and usage statistics via fast access buttons.
