A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use a specific feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting package through us, you'll be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only 1 domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder in the account that it's going to open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like simply because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it is going to access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and handle them. With quick access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
