A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the main school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will 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 sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to create many subdomains for any domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it'll access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and manage them. Through instant access links, you'll have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
