A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you want to use some feature that's not 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 purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated servers haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them with ease.
