A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of 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 particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting
When you acquire a shared website hosting package through our company, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only 1 domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different website for each one of them. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder inside the account that it will open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, select a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you are going to be able to gain access to numerous functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans haven't got a set limit for the amount of subdomains which you can create. Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes just a couple of mouse clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or set a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can easily jump to the site files for it inside the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any one of them with ease.
