What is a subdomain? How to set up one? How can it help your online presence?
A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a feature that isn't offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
packages will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage every single one of them with ease.
