A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share views about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every single shared hosting plan we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep track of all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated packages don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just 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 will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
