A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a feature which is not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you purchase a shared hosting package from us, you will be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder within the account that it will open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will permit 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, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the website files or check out logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
