A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that is not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website 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 employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Through our web hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with just a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their managing much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You will also have access to lots of 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. In contrast to other providers, we haven't limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the site files or view logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
