A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school website. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting packages you'll be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them will be listed in a single spot along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with only 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 have not limited the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it will access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and control them. With instant access links, you will also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
