A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An 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 site 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 different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to 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 Website Hosting

Through our website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration easier. Whatever the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that 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'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the site files or view logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
