A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit 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 one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students as well as the main school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Through our shared hosting plans you are going to be able to create subdomains with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. All of them are going to be listed in a single place along with the domain addresses hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain so as to make their management easier. Regardless of the plan that you choose, you are going to be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. Additionally, you will have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not limited the amount of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain address in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans don't have a set limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
