A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing 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 website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils aside from the main school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

If you obtain a hosting package from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains with ease using your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host just one domain in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you would like and have a different website for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you can select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to access a lot of functions for every single one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers don't have a set limit for the amount of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting CP and in the process you can choose the folder the subdomain will access if it is going to be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one if you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or quickly jump to the website files for it in the File Manager area through instant access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and handle every single one of them easily.
