A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use some feature which isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Each shared web hosting plan we supply will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated plans as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
