A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit 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 another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school website. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

When you use shared web hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing easier. No matter the plan that you pick, you will be able to create numerous subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not restricted the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host only one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish since this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the website hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks, to pick which folder it will access inside the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and control them. With instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
