A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a feature that's not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
If you acquire a website hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host just one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder in the account that it'll 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, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’re able to create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages since we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will permit 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, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can even access the site files or view logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
