A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a specific feature that's not offered by your current provider. An illustration 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 even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder in the account that it's going to open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put 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 mouse clicks, to choose which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and control them. Through quick access links, you'll also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
