A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Each and every shared hosting plan we supply will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is totally up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to select which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and handle them. Using fast access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
