A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a feature that isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside 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, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the web site files or view logs and usage stats using fast access buttons.
