A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school website. 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 sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
With our cloud web hosting packages you will be able to create subdomains with only a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in a single place together with the domains hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration much easier. Whatever the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to many functions for any of them with just a click, so from the same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other companies, we haven't restricted the number of subdomains which you can have even if you host only one domain name in the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can create as many subdomains as you would like with any of our semi-dedicated hosting service since we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are offered in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and much more. Even if you set up a huge amount of subdomains, you will be able to keep track of them with ease since they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can even access the website files or see logs and usage statistics via quick access buttons.
