A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you're 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 in addition to the primary school website. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

When you use cloud hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with only a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them are going to be listed in a single place along with the domains hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their management simpler. Regardless of the plan that you select, you're going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains you can have even if you host just one domain address within the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like since this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it will access within the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so you can very easily see and handle them. Through fast access links, you will also be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
