A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an illustration, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for any domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain address is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site 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
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area through quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and handle any of them effortlessly.
