A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different sites that are related in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to set up many subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unrestricted. Since the website hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it will access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and manage them. With instant access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
