A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school site. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Each web hosting package which we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep track of them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want since this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to pick which folder it'll access within the account, to activate 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 that you can very easily see and manage them. Using fast access links, you'll be able to open the site files for any one of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
