A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an illustration, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school website. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

Our hosting plans will permit you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any difficulty. If the main domain address is added, it takes two clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers 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 clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them easily.
