A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you want to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can 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'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only one 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 one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder within the account that it's going to open, create custom 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 names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access lots of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
