A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, 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 site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Each shared website hosting package we provide will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep an eye on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick 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 more. Even if you set up a large number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you are able to access the site files or see logs and usage statistics through instant access buttons.
