A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a feature that's not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
Each hosting plan which we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any cap on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access within the account, to enable 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 of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and handle them. Through quick access links, you'll be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
