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 world wide web. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent 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, such as an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school site. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Every single cloud hosting package we supply will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your web hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unrestricted. For the reason that the website hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia CP will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it will access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and many more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can very easily see and manage them. Using instant access links, you will also be able to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
