A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely practical if you'd like to have different sites which are associated in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host just one domain address in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder inside the account that it's going to 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 will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
