A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use some feature that's not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every single hosting package we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep track of all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
