A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to set up many subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it requires 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
