A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
With our hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one location together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their managing easier. Whatever the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain name within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated plans since we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will allow you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics via instant access buttons.
