A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, 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 provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
Every cloud website hosting plan which we provide will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like simply because this feature is unlimited.

Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and handle them. Through quick access links, you'll also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
