A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different sites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Using our cloud web hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their management much easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You will also have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. Since the hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction 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 couple of mouse clicks, to pick which folder it'll access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and control them. Through fast access links, you will also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
