A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site 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 primary school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Every cloud web hosting package which we provide will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep track of them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is completely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and during the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
