A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Each cloud web hosting package which we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep an eye on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can create as many subdomains as you wish with any one of our semi-dedicated plans since we haven't set an upper limit for this feature. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with just a few mouse clicks and you can access a number of advanced features during the process - modify the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, plus much more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For any of them, you are able to access the site files or check out logs and usage stats via fast access buttons.
