A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. 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 one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for students in addition to the main school site. If you work with subdomains instead of 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 one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Each and every hosting package we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot 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 setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have many options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is totally up to you because we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle any of them easily.
