A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Each shared hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep track of them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You’re able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated servers because we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a great number of subdomains, you are going to be able to keep track of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you are able to access the website files or see logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
