A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main 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 another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to 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 specific website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
If you obtain a web hosting package through us, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to gain access to lots of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting packages haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few clicks within the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it will be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any of them easily.
