A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you wish to use some feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing a lot easier. No matter the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated packages don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle any of them easily.
