A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. 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 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 service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Using our shared hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single place together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their managing simpler. Whatever the plan that you choose, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated services do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a couple of clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage every single one of them with ease.
