A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use a feature which is not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

When you buy a shared hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host just one domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for each and every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder in the account that it's going to open, set up 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 that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to access lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
