A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you obtain a website hosting plan through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host just one domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

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