A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Each cloud hosting package which we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you very easily monitor them all. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans don't have a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you have within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any one of them effortlessly.
