A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share views about your products. The main advantage 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 without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain is added, it takes 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service because we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the web site files or view logs and usage stats through quick access buttons.
