A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration 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 website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unlimited. Considering that the hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to select which folder it's going to access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. With quick access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
