A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will enable you to set up countless subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address 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), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want simply because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them. Using quick access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
