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

Subdomains in Hosting

If you get a hosting package through our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to limit their number, so even when you host just one domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder inside the account that it's going to open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you are going to be able to gain access to a lot of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
