A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use a certain feature which isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Each website hosting plan which we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep track of them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and control them. With fast access links, you'll be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
