A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that's not provided by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

When you buy a web hosting plan from us, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host just one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder inside the account that it'll open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to access lots of functions for every single one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
