A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting plan we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated packages since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a variety 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 offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you're going to 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 are able to access the web site files or view logs and usage stats through quick access buttons.
