A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be quite handy if you wish to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every cloud hosting plan we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep tabs on them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section by using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control every single one of them with ease.
