A subdomain is a 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 because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting plans will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain address is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated service since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick 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 set up a great number of subdomains, you're going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the web site files or view logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
