A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan that we supply will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep tabs on all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans do not have a limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When 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 within the File Manager section via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them easily.
