A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting plans will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set unique 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 easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unlimited. Since the website hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any limit 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 couple of clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and control them. Using quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
