A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very beneficial if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences about your products. The benefit of employing 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 without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
If you purchase a shared web hosting
plan from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to choose the folder within the account that it's going to open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
