A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, 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 also be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current provider. A good 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. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose 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, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting because we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you'll 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 can also access the site files or view logs and usage statistics using instant access buttons.
