A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Through our shared hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in one location together with the domain names hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain so as to make their administration a lot easier. Regardless of the plan that you select, you'll be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to many functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we have not limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like because this feature is unlimited. For the reason that the hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to set any cap on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it's going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and handle them. With quick access links, you'll be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
