A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to create countless subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain name is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them easily.
