A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school website. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single location along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you pick, you're going to be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with just a click, so from the very same section where 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 only one domain within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it will 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 many more. For your convenience, all the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and manage them. Using quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
