A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
With our cloud web hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management a lot easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we have not limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain address within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it is going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom 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 subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and control them. Using instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
