A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An 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 site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different websites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
plans will permit you to create numerous subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain name is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server
plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. Using fast access links, you will also have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
