A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, 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 even be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature which isn't offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting plan we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your website hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans because we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
