A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

When you buy a web hosting package from our company, you will be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only 1 domain address in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it'll open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to access numerous functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than 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 stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you have inside 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 with ease.
