A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature that is not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Each and every website hosting plan we supply will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep an eye on them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated servers as we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel allows you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you can 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 which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all 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 website files or check out logs and usage statistics through quick access buttons.
