A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance 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". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted using a different company if you want to use some feature which is not provided by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in the case of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to create as many subdomains as you want with any of our semi-dedicated hosting plans as we have not set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting CP will enable you to add a new subdomain with a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, select the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can also access the site files or see logs and usage statistics using instant access buttons.
