A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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 a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you obtain a shared web hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to access many functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the web site files or see logs and usage stats via fast access buttons.
