A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many websites such as 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 an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

Each and every hosting plan that we provide will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have a number of options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create 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. After the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
