A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site 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 website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the main school site. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting packages will allow you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will 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 fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few mouse clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP 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 set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and control every single one of them easily.
