A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. As long as the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like because this feature is unlimited. Since the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it will access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and manage them. Using fast access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
