A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use cloud website hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration much easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and control them. With fast access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
