A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every 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 fully independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every shared hosting package that we provide will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly monitor all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is completely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans since we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit 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, choose 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 more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the website files or view logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
