A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you want to have different sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every single shared hosting package that we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them effortlessly.
