A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you'd like to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share views about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting package from us, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder within the account that it's going to open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access numerous functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain.
