A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each shared website hosting package which we supply will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on all of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can also access the website files or check out logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
