A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, 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 separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different websites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The main advantage of employing 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 without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting plan through us, you're going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host only 1 domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder in the account that it'll open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
