A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder within the account that it's going to 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 much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It's going to take a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you'll be able to add custom error pages for it, pick if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have in the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you will be able to see and manage them with ease. Using quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager section or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any of your subdomains.
