A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 service provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you want to have different websites that are associated in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Hosting
packages will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any difficulty. If the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get a semi-dedicated server
package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and control them. Using instant access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
