A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you'd like to have different websites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting plan through us, you will be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder within the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans because we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select 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, and more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the site files or check out logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
