A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that's not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you use shared website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with just a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management simpler. No matter the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the very same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not limited the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it will access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and control them. Using fast access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
