A subdomain is the part of the web address that’s before a domain and you’ve almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains – en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of 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 different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school site. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it’ll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will enable you to create numerous subdomains for any domain hosted in your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain is added, it requires two clicks to set up a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We haven’t set a limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting haven’t got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting CP and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up customized error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address as opposed to the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you can access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section via fast access buttons. All subdomains that you’ve got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you’ll be able to find and control any one of them easily.
