A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting packages will allow you to create numerous subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a restriction for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up custom error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can easily jump to the site files for it in the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you've got within the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any of them with ease.
