A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a specific feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will 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 view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a great 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 each of them, you can also access the website files or check out logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
