A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school site. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up many subdomains for every domain hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area via fast access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control any one of them with ease.
