A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create countless subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular 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 want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
