A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage 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 can have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the main school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with just a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management much easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to a lot of functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. As opposed to other providers, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain address in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unlimited. Considering that the website hosting plans are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it is going to 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 much more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and handle them. Through instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
