A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be extremely practical if you'd like to have different web sites that are related in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will enable you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain address is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unlimited. Considering that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them. With instant access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
