A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you want to use a certain feature that is not offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure 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 hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access numerous functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
