A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you wish to have different sites that are related in some way. For instance, 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 clients to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every single shared hosting plan that we supply will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section via instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
