A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address is added, it takes 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the website files or check out logs and usage stats via quick access buttons.
