A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you wish to use some feature that isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting services
do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle any one of them easily.
