A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any problem. If the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting services don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control every single one of them effortlessly.
