A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you want to have different web sites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share experiences about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

When you acquire a cloud website hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host just one domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to choose the folder within the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
