A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different websites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting package from us, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their number, so even when you host only 1 domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder inside the account that it'll open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area via instant access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any one of them with ease.
