A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different sites that are associated in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
When you purchase a hosting plan through our company, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only one domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it's going to open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to numerous functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
