A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you get a shared web hosting plan through us, you're going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host just one domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder within the account that it'll open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access lots of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated service haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them effortlessly.
