A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Each shared web hosting plan which we supply will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep tabs on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the web hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Using quick access links, you will also be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
