A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very practical if you want to have different sites which are related in some way. As an example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every shared hosting package that we offer will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your website hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep track of every one of them. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting services haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
