A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting plans will enable you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them with ease.
