A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a feature that isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Using our shared web hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with only a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you'll be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain name in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated servers since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the website files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
