A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an example, many sites such as 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 a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the primary school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll 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 are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. Using fast access links, you will also have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
