A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school website. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to set up countless subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it takes two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set customized 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 quick access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout 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 tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them effortlessly.
