A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use some feature which is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you acquire a cloud hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their number, so even if you host only one domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder in the account that it will open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to access a lot of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
