A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain could be very practical if you wish to have different web sites that are related 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 supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share opinions concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you acquire a shared website hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only one domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder within the account that it will open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to gain access to a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting haven't got a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
