A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you buy a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host just one domain name in the account, you'll 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 can select the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle any one of them with ease.
