A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different 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 website and its own records, so you can 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 in addition to the main school website. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll 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 each other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will enable you to set up countless subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any hassle. As long as the main domain is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus 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 fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can 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 that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any of them easily.
