A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance 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 single subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a feature that's not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will 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 the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with just a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration much easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain name inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish simply because this feature is unlimited. Since the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to select which folder it will access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. Through instant access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
