A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, 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 part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share views about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you are able to access the web site files or see logs and usage stats using fast access buttons.
