A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Every cloud web hosting package which we supply will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep an eye on all of them. Additionally, you can access lots 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 website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager area via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control every single one of them effortlessly.
