A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site 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 website, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the main school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
When you use shared web hosting plans you will be able to create subdomains with a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. All of them will be listed in one place together with the domain names hosted in the account and arranged under their own domain to help make their managing simpler. No matter the plan that you select, you'll be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages along the way. You will also have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other providers, we have not restricted the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host one domain within the account.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to create as many subdomains as you would like with any one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers as we have not set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to add a new subdomain with only a few mouse clicks and you'll be able to access a variety of advanced features during the process - change the default access folder, choose the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones which are available in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and a lot more. Even if you create a large number of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease as they are going to be listed in alphabetical order below their main domain. For any of them, you can also access the site files or view logs and usage stats using quick access buttons.
