A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "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 that is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated plans since we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a number 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 offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the web site files or see logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
