A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you need to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Through our website hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a few mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their management easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated packages as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the website files or see logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
