A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share experiences about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

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