A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share thoughts about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
When you obtain a hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host just one domain in the account, you will 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'll be able to pick the folder within the account that it will 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, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages because we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace 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 set up a huge amount of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease because they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or check out logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
