A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you need to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Every single shared web hosting package we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your web hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep track of them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated servers since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few clicks and you can access a number 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 that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they will be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For each of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
