A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

All of them are going to be listed in one spot together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages during the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the very same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host one domain name within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section through instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any of them easily.
