A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

If you acquire a hosting plan from us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder within the account that it's going to 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, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting do not have a set limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to 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 such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control every single one of them with ease.
