A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school website. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to 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 one another.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for every domain name hosted within your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires 2 mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create unique 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 administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you are going to be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It takes a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you are going to be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, choose if it will use a shared or a dedicated IP address, change the default folder that it will access or activate FrontPage Extensions. All subdomains you've got inside the account will be grouped under their root domain in alphabetical order and you are going to be able to see and manage them with ease. By using quick access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the site files within the File Manager section or see logs, visitor statistics and other info about any of your subdomains.
