A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain could be very beneficial if you wish to have different web sites that are related in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain name is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated servers as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the website files or check out logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
