A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite handy if you want to have different sites that are related in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you use shared hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their administration easier. No matter the plan that you select, you will be able to create many 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 same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we have not restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain name in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated service haven't got a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle every single one of them with ease.
