A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that is not offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

If you obtain a web hosting plan from us, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside the account that it'll open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to access lots of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. Using instant access links, you will also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
