A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single 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 fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different web sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of 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 Shared Web Hosting
If you acquire a shared web hosting package from us, you will be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder in the account that it's going to open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access lots of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
