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 Internet. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in several 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 website 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 pupils in addition to the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Our website hosting packages will permit you to set up countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any hassle. If the main domain address is added, it will take two clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you are going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It will take a few clicks to create a new subdomain and in the process you will be able to add custom-made error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains that you have inside the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and handle them with ease. Using instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager area or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
