A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will enable you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain address hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain name is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our Linux semi-dedicated plans because 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 are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the website files or see logs and usage stats through fast access buttons.
