A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students as well as the primary school website. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each and every web hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on them all. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized 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. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area by using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any one of them easily.
