A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use some feature which is not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting plan through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their number, so even if you host only one domain address in the account, you're going to 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 are able to pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create custom 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 place and you'll be able to access lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like simply because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it'll access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and handle them. Using instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
