A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 totally independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very beneficial if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share opinions concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a shared web hosting package through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host just one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder inside the account that it will open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
