A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also 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 site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated plans because we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the website files or view logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
