A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
Our hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for any domain address hosted within your account without any problem. Provided that the main domain is added, it requires 2 clicks to create 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 quick access and control. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total number of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any of the domains you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and during the process you are going to be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, select if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it'll access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains which you have in the account are going to be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you're going to be able to see and manage them with ease. Via instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the site files in the File Manager area or view logs, visitor statistics and other info about any one of your subdomains.
