A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite useful if you wish to have different websites which are connected in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions 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 Shared Web Hosting
Each and every shared web hosting plan which we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor all of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. Since the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and handle them. With instant access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
