A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you'd like to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Every shared website hosting package we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep an eye on every one of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want as this feature is unlimited. Since the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it will access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and manage them. Through instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
