A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will 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 packages will allow you to create many subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle every single one of them with ease.
