A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you wish to have different sites that are connected 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 in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create numerous subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like simply because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and manage them. With fast access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
