A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you wish to have different sites which are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting package from us, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder in the account that it'll open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick 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 location and you'll be able to access a lot of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area via instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them easily.
