A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
plans will permit you to set up numerous subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized 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 effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server
package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish simply because this feature is unlimited. Since the website hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it'll access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and control them. With instant access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
