What exactly is a subdomain? How could you create one? How can it help your Internet presence?
A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very beneficial if you'd like to have different sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Every web hosting
package which we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP 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, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area via quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them easily.
