A subdomain is a part of a web address that is 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 because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance 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 the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Through our web hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing easier. Whatever the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain name within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting packages haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in 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, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any of them easily.
