A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up 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 much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you will be able to 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 provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can also access the website files or check out logs and usage statistics using instant access buttons.
