A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you obtain a shared hosting package through our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it's going to open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to access numerous functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unlimited. Considering that the web hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access inside 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 more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and manage them. Using instant access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
