A subdomain is a part of a web address that's 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 just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use some feature that's not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans haven't got a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage every single one of them with ease.
