A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you need to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their amount, so even if you host just 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 and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose 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 will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to gain access to a lot of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
