A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a specific feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Hosting
Through our hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with just a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single location along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their managing a lot easier. Whatever the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain name inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it is going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and control them. Through fast access links, you'll be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
