A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One 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 website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different websites that are related in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting plan from us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their number, so even if you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to numerous functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated plans as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can even access the website files or see logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
