A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you need to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each hosting plan that we provide will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it will access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and manage them. Through quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
