A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use a certain feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting plan that we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily monitor every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access in 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. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. With instant access links, you'll also be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
