A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an illustration, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate 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 college students on top of the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting packages will allow you to create numerous subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any hassle. If the main domain is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and 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 instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages do not have a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting CP and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one if 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 quickly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and manage any of them easily.
