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" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a feature which is not offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you use hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single location together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing a lot easier. No matter the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain name in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated plans since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify 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 a lot more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the web site files or check out logs and usage stats via quick access buttons.
