A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you want to use some feature that isn't offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting plan from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so in case you host only one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder inside the account that it'll open, create customized 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 that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
