A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a feature that isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can even have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Hosting

When you buy a hosting plan from us, you're going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so in case 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 every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder in the account that it'll open, set up customized 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 will be able to access many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
