A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 completely independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you may have an online 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 share thoughts concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you obtain a shared website hosting package from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host just one domain in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder in the account that it'll 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, and more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to gain access to numerous functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
