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

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Every shared web hosting package we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have many options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. Through instant access links, you'll be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
