A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 entirely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain could be very useful if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share views about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server
package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. Since the hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it will access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set 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, so you can easily see and manage them. Using fast access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
