A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you wish to have different sites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you use shared website hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single place along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their management easier. No matter the plan that you select, you are going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain name within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area via instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
