A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different sites that are associated in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to set up many subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain address is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or view logs and usage statistics using fast access buttons.
