A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you wish to use some feature which is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will permit you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don't have a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
