A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. 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. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you wish to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting plan we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep an eye on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify 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 more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the site files or see logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
