A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use some feature that's not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you get a shared hosting package through our company, you will be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even if you host only one 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 each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder in the account that it'll open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose 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 are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unlimited. Considering that the hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it is going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them. Through quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
