A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are 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 pupils aside from the primary school website. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Every hosting plan we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your hosting CP. They will all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep tabs on them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create unique 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 100 % up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like since this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia CP will allow you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to choose which folder it will access in 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 a lot more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can easily see and manage them. With instant access links, you will also have the ability to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
