A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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 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 even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share views about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will enable you to set up many subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unlimited. Since the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and control them. Through instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
