A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using 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 without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Each shared hosting plan that we supply will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated plans as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you'll be able to access a variety 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, plus much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the website files or view logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
