A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different company if you wish to use some feature which isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website and an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is more secure in case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like simply because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and manage them. Using instant access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
