A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will permit you to set up countless subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick 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 which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and in 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 as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any of them easily.
