A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that is not offered 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. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Each and every web hosting package we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily monitor them all. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and control them. With fast access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
