A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration 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. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you'd like to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will enable you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any difficulty. If the main domain name is added, it will take two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will 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 instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it will access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. With fast access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
