A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them with ease.
