A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Through our shared website hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their management easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain name within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the website files or view logs and usage stats through quick access buttons.
