A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own website and records and can also be hosted with a different provider if you need to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a limit for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account.
