A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The 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 separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Every single shared web hosting plan which we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They will 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. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have lots of options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to choose which folder it is going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and handle them. Using fast access links, you will also have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
