A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Each and every shared web hosting package that we supply will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it'll access within 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 many more. For your convenience, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Using quick access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
