A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where 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. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you want to have different websites that are related in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you buy a shared web hosting plan from us, you're going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their number, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder within the account that it's going to open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
