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 browsing world wide web. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Through our web hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with a couple of clicks in your hosting CP. All of them will be listed in one spot along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other companies, we haven't limited the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host one domain name within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to select which folder it'll access in 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 much more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. With instant access links, you will also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
