A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website 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 even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you buy a hosting package from our company, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder within the account that it'll open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting plans are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and handle them. Through instant access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
