A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils aside from the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages will permit you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any 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 restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them with ease.
