A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since 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 provider if you wish to use a specific feature that is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
packages will permit you to set up countless subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
haven't got a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized 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. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section through fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any one of them easily.
