A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use some feature that is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting packages will allow you to create many subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set 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 easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case 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 quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle every single one of them with ease.
