A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you want to use a certain feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Every shared hosting plan we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is totally up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it'll access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. Using quick access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
