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 site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different sites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share opinions about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each cloud hosting package which we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
