A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature that's not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle any of them easily.
