A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that isn't provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will allow you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting don't have 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 in the Hepsia website hosting CP 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, set up tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
