A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website 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 separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different web sites which are related in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Each and every website hosting package that we supply will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our Linux semi-dedicated services since we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting CP allows you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - modify 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 a lot more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For each of them, you can also access the website files or see logs and usage statistics through fast access buttons.
