A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share opinions regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
When you buy a cloud web hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder in the account that it's going to open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access numerous functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control every single one of them easily.
