A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
If you acquire a website hosting plan through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only one domain in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it will open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you will be able to see and manage all of them without difficulty. Using fast access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or check logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
