A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you wish to have different websites which are connected in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Every shared web hosting plan which we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and control any one of them easily.
