A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils aside from the main school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will permit you to create numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted in your account without any problem. Assuming that the main domain name is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for quick access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting services 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 clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and during the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to 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 as opposed to the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
