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 surfing around world wide web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school site. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Every hosting plan which we offer will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on them all. In addition, you can access many 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 more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you as we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area via instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any of them easily.
