A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different 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 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 website, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school site. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting packages will enable you to set up many subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain name is added, it takes 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy 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 website files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you'll 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 have decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it'll access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and handle them. With instant access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
