A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a feature which isn't offered by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains rather than 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 also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
When you get a shared web hosting package through our company, you will be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder inside the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you are going to be able to add custom error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and handle all of them without difficulty. Using quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files inside the File Manager area or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
