A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will permit you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain address is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular 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
Our semi-dedicated services do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle every single one of them with ease.
