A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element 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 even be hosted using a different provider if you want to use a feature which isn't provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting plan from us, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so even when you host only 1 domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder inside the account that it will open, create personalized 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 that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access lots of functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
