A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite handy if you want to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you purchase a cloud hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only 1 domain in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder within the account that it'll open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to gain access to numerous functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it will access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. With fast access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
