A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site 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 different company. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only 1 domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder inside the account that it will open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to numerous functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting plans are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it'll access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. Through fast access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
