A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use some feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

When you get a web hosting package from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their number, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder in the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to access lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don't have a limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized 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. Once the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them effortlessly.
