A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Each and every website hosting package we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your web hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unlimited. Since the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access in 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 much more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and manage them. Using instant access links, you'll also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
