A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as 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 through a different provider if you wish to use a feature which isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each shared website hosting plan that we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting services because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease as 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 view logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
