A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature that's not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

When you purchase a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only 1 domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to access lots of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
