A subdomain is a website url, 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. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will enable you to set up countless subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain address is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated plans because we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick 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, and a lot more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you are able to access the website files or check out logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
