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

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan we provide will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create 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 are going to have is 100 % up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and handle them. With quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
