A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
When you buy a shared hosting plan through our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you're going to 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 inside the account that it'll 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, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to access many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Through our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account.
