A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a specific feature which isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting plan we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on all of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout 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-made 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 this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any of them easily.
