A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very practical if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every single shared hosting package which we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep tabs on them all. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like because this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and manage them. Using instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
