A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you'd like to have different websites that are connected in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you obtain a hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder within the account that it will open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
