A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which 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. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you'd like to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
When you acquire a shared web hosting package from us, you're going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host only one domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to create as many subdomains as you wish with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with only a few clicks and you'll be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, select 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, plus much more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or see logs and usage stats through instant access buttons.
