A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 fully independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each and every cloud hosting plan which we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily monitor them all. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated hosting because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the site files or see logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
