The List of Subdomain Properties

The list below contains subdomain properties you can set with the property parameter. Note that allowed values for properties may vary depending on the server’s operating system and the list of installed components. For example, you can assign to the php_version property only those PHP versions that are installed on your server.

To get the exact list of parameters and their possible values available on your system for a particular subdomain, retrieve a hosting settings descriptor using the site/get-physical-hosting-descriptor operation with a filter by the subdomain’s id. To learn more, see Getting Descriptors of Hosting Settings.
