A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example 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 site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

If you acquire a shared website hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host just one domain name in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder within the account that it'll open, set up 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 domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to lots of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
