A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for pupils aside from the main school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting packages will enable you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to pick which folder it will access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. Through quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
