A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting package from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their amount, so even if you host only 1 domain name in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder inside the account that it's going to open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that 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.
