A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different websites that are related in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of employing 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 without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you use shared hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single place along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unlimited. Considering that the hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and control them. With instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
