A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you need to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
Through our shared website hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with only a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single location along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. Whatever the plan that you pick, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you will have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting packages haven't got a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and during 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, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have inside 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 effortlessly.
