A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting package that we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for 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 numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you can access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any one of them, you are able to access the site files or see logs and usage statistics via instant access buttons.
