A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you'd like to have different websites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

If you acquire a cloud website hosting package from us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder inside the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to 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

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans haven't got a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area via quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any one of them easily.
