A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing 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 employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students 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 specific website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Each shared web hosting package that we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area using fast access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any one of them effortlessly.
