A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature which isn't provided by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a cloud hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains easily through your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their number, so even when you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to gain access to a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
