A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One 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 website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you wish to have different websites which are connected in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any of them effortlessly.
