A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you wish to have different sites which are related in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud hosting packages you're going to be able to create subdomains with a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single place together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their management a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to many functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unlimited. Considering that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it'll access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and manage them. Through quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
