A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain could be very practical if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The benefit of employing 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 permit you to set up many subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain name is added, it takes 2 clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. 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 specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting do not have a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them effortlessly.
