A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting plans are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and control them. With instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
