A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting plan from us, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even if you host only one domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder within the account that it's going to open, set up personalized 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 numerous functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. Considering that the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it will access within the account, to activate 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 are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and manage them. With quick access links, you will also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
