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" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting package we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep track of every one of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not have 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 throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them with ease.
