A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you can 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 or share thoughts about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total 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 Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages 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 can 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, plus much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
