A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature that's not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you use website hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management much easier. Whatever the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many 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. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom-made 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. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using fast access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control any one of them easily.
