A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every single shared hosting package we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have lots of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them easily.
