A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example 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 website 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 also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share views about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to 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.

All of them will be listed in one location along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their managing much easier. No matter the plan that you choose, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’re able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the website files or view logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
