A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, 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 fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only one domain in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder in the account that it's going to open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select 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 much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage statistics via fast access buttons.
