A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any problem. If the main domain name is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area through quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle any of them easily.
