A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain could be very useful if you want to have different sites that are associated in some way. For example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will allow you to create many subdomains for any domain hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain is added, it will take two clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated packages don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
