A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

When you use web hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their management easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose 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 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 under their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the site files or see logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
