A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very useful if you wish to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
When you use website hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain to help make their management a lot easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages during the process. You will also have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our semi-dedicated servers because we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you will be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of all of them with ease since they will be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage stats using instant access buttons.
