A subdomain is part of a web address that's 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". Each subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature which isn't provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you use hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management easier. No matter the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse 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 that you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
