A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you buy a shared web hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to numerous functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few mouse clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom-made error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have inside the account are going to be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you're going to be able to see and handle them without difficulty. By using fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the website files inside the File Manager area or see logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
