A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a shared website hosting plan from us, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host just one domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder inside the account that it will open, create personalized 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 are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to access many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

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 plans as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a number 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, plus much more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the website files or view logs and usage stats via quick access buttons.
