A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different websites which are associated in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
Every single shared website hosting package which we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website 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, create unique 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 completely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a set limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting CP and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section by using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any one of them easily.
