A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you need to use a certain feature which is not provided by your current service 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 purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting package we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily monitor all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want as this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and manage them. Using fast access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
