A subdomain is a web address, 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 subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
When you obtain a website hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to gain access to numerous functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control every single one of them with ease.
