A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different company if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting package from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their number, so even when you host only 1 domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder within the account that it will open, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to gain access to numerous functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
