A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will enable you to create countless subdomains for every domain hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain is added, it requires two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like simply because this feature is unlimited. Considering that the hosting packages are very powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it's going to access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and handle them. Using fast access links, you will also be able to open the website files for each of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
