A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every shared hosting plan we supply will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create customized 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 100 % up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it'll access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and handle them. With fast access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
