A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school site. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting

When you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly via your Hepsia hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host just one domain name in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different website for every single one. During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it will open, set up custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and much more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you'll be able to gain access to numerous functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages don't have a limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain in the account takes only a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and in the process you can pick the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, create tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. Once the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager section using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got inside the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and handle any one of them with ease.
