A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every shared hosting plan we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep tabs on all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select 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 because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a great 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 each of them, you can even access the site files or see logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
