A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Using a subdomain could be very practical if you'd like to have different web sites that are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share views about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
When you use website hosting packages you are going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one spot together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their administration much easier. Whatever the plan that you pick, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain name inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area using fast access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage any of them easily.
