A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different websites that are associated in some way. For instance, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

If you acquire a shared web hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host just one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose 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 are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access a lot of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated hosting services since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can even access the website files or check out logs and usage statistics through instant access buttons.
