A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can 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 on top of the primary school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any problem. As long as the main domain address is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient 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 site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains 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 package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the website hosting plans are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it will access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. Using instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
