A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are associated in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you use website hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with just a few clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their management a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we have not limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated services haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area through fast 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 control every single one of them with ease.
