A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a feature that isn't offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

With our web hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with only a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their managing simpler. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You will also have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain name inside the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unlimited. Since the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it'll access within 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 a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them. Through instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
