A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a feature that's not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their managing simpler. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated hosting packages as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
