A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which 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. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain could be very beneficial if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you use shared hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain name inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access inside 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 many more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. With instant access links, you'll be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
