A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative 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 sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
When you acquire a shared web hosting plan from our company, you are going to be able to create subdomains with ease via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so in case you host only 1 domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for every single one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder within 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 a lot more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you are going to be able to gain access to lots of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted amount of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you'll be able to add custom error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it's going to access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you will be able to see and control all of them with ease. By using instant access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files inside the File Manager area or see logs, visitor stats and other information about any one of your subdomains.
