A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from us, you will be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their number, so even when you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder within the account that it's going to open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose 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 spot and you are going to be able to access many functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any of them effortlessly.
