A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting plan through us, you will be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder within the account that it'll open, create personalized 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 domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to lots of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Using quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
