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 the 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 an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school website. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Each cloud website hosting package which we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is completely up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area via quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any of them with ease.
