A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share opinions concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it will access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and control them. Using quick access links, you'll be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
