A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site 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 comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Every cloud website hosting plan which we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep tabs on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it will access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. Using fast access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
