A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 totally independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you could have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each and every shared website hosting package we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout 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 rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
