A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting plans will enable you to create countless subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any hassle. If the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and pick 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, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like simply because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access within 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 more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Through fast access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
