A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain could be very useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Every single website hosting plan we offer will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
