A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that's not offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you obtain a website hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside the account that it'll open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access numerous functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage every single one of them effortlessly.
