A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use a feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single place along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration easier. No matter the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our semi-dedicated service since we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the web site files or view logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
