A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you want to use a specific feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Through our website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with just a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one spot along with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we haven't limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.
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 simply because this feature is unrestricted. Since the hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it will access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. With quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
