A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. As an example, many websites like 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 a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the main 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 site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting packages will enable you to set up many subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain address is added, it requires 2 mouse 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, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager section through quick access buttons. All subdomains you have inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle any of them with ease.
