A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an illustration, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main 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 a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will enable you to set up hundreds of subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant 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 total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like simply because this feature is unlimited. Since the web hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to select which folder it will access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and manage them. Through instant access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
