A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
When you buy a cloud web hosting plan from us, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host just one domain name in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like 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 personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting plans are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it will access within 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 much more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and manage them. Through quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
