A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use a feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing 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 site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Each web hosting package that we provide will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have lots of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any one of them, you can also access the web site files or check out logs and usage stats via fast access buttons.
