A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Each and every cloud hosting package that we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily monitor every one of them. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated services since we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
