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 the Web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students in addition to the main school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting plans will enable you to create many subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any difficulty. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don't have a limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia website hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can swiftly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any one of them easily.
