A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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 completely independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you'd like to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share opinions regarding your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated plans haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account.
