A subdomain is 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" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a certain feature that is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up many subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized 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 quick access and management. 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 limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a set limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area via instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
