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, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you wish to have different websites which are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting package through us, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host just one domain 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 of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder inside the account that it will 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 more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
