A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain could be very useful if you'd like to have different sites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain address inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web 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, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area through fast access buttons.
