A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that is not offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you use website hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you are going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create 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. As opposed to other companies, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain address in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number 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 set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the web site files or view logs and usage stats via fast access buttons.
