A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Each shared web hosting plan we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep an eye on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can pick 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. How many subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick 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, plus much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the site files or check out logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
