A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate 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, like an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the main school website. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll 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 Hosting
Each hosting package which we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like because this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so you can effortlessly see and control them. With quick access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
