A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website 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 site, such as an e-learning portal for college students as well as 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 certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

Every cloud website hosting package that we supply will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep track of them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have lots of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you will have is totally up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server package, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you wish because this feature is unlimited. Since the hosting plans are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any cap on the amount of subdomains. Our innovative Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to select which folder it is going to access inside the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create unique error pages, to create a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all of the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to easily see and control them. With instant access links, you'll also be able to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
