A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share opinions about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain address is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting don't have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section via instant access buttons. All subdomains 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 handle every single one of them easily.
