A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a certain feature that's not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
When you get a hosting plan through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up custom 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 domains and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to numerous functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area through fast access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any one of them easily.
