A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites 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
When you get a shared web hosting
package through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder in the account that it's going to open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
because we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the website files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
