A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any difficulty. If the main domain name is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select 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 will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers because we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose 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 much more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the web site files or see logs and usage statistics using instant access buttons.
