A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. As an illustration, 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 an independent website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the main school site. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
If you purchase a web hosting package from us, you're going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their number, so even if you host just one domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for each and every one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to pick the folder in the account that it'll open, create personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you'll be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers do not have a restriction for the number of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia web hosting CP and in the process you can select the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any one of them easily.
