A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick 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, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any of them effortlessly.
