A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage of using 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 site, like an e-learning portal for pupils on top of 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 specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each web hosting plan that we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - define 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. The amount of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to select which folder it's going to access in 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 a lot more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and manage them. With quick access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
