A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you'd like to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you may 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 / or share opinions about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
If you obtain a cloud website hosting plan through our company, you will be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder within the account that it will open, create personalized 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 gain access to many functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle every single one of them with ease.
