A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of 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 different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared hosting package from our company, you'll be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can choose the folder in the account that it will open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you'll be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom-made error pages for it, decide if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got within the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you are going to be able to see and manage all of them with ease. Via fast access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager area or view logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
