A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you need to use some feature that's not offered by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
Using our hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just 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 companies, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting plans are rather 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 select which folder it's going to access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, 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 also be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
