A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a shared website hosting plan from us, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host just one domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder within the account that it will open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to lots of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
