A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use some feature which isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their number, so even when you host just one domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder in 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, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section by using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle every single one of them effortlessly.
