A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different websites which are connected in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
Each and every hosting package we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep track of them all. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the web hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and handle them. Using fast access links, you'll also be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
