A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use some feature which is not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll 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 Website Hosting
If you acquire a shared website hosting package through us, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even if you host only one domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder in the account that it's going to open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated packages haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section by using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any of them easily.
