A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school website. If you use subdomains as opposed 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 Website Hosting
If you obtain a website hosting plan through us, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder inside the account that it will open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or swiftly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section via quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
