A subdomain is a website 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, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting packages will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any hassle. If the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans don't have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section using instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them effortlessly.
