A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a specific feature that is not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create countless subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take two clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than 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'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 instant access buttons. All subdomains you have inside 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.
