A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you want to use a feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

When you use website hosting plans you're going to be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their managing much easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated servers since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or check out logs and usage stats via instant access buttons.
