A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an illustration, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting package through us, you'll be able to create subdomains effortlessly using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We have decided not to limit their number, so in case you host only 1 domain name in the account, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want 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's going to open, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and 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 will be able to access numerous functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like as this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the web hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the amount of subdomains. Our sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to create a new subdomain with no more than a couple of mouse clicks, to select which folder it is going to access in the account, to activate FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and a lot more. For your convenience, all the subdomains will be listed under their root domain, allowing you to very easily see and manage them. With quick access links, you will also have the ability to open the website files for any one of the subdomains that you have or check out its DNS records.
