A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of 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, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting plans you'll be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one location along with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain in order to make their administration simpler. Whatever the plan that you select, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or set up custom error pages along the way. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with only a mouse click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains you can have even if you host only one domain inside the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you would like as this feature is unlimited. Considering that the web hosting packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few mouse clicks, to pick which folder it's going to access inside 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 much more. For your convenience, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and control them. With instant access links, you'll be able to open the site files for each of the subdomains that you have or view its DNS records.
