A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use some feature that is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting package through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even if you host only one domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it's going to open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting services don't have a limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area via quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any one of them easily.
