A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a feature which isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you buy a shared web hosting plan from us, you are going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder inside the account that it's going to 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 are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access lots of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section by using fast access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
