A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you'd like to have different sites that are related in some way. For instance, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and handle them. Through instant access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
