A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The 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 separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every single shared hosting package we supply will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your web hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor every one of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you are going to have is 100 % up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unrestricted. Since the website hosting plans are very powerful, we've decided not to put any cap on the number of subdomains. Our advanced Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access in the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to set up custom error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and much more. For your convenience, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to effortlessly see and manage them. Using fast access links, you'll also have the ability to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
