A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a feature that's not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast 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 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 Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans do not have a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section via instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any of them easily.
