A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, 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 fully independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it requires two clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom 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 effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up 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. Once the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any of them easily.
