A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website 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 site, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school website. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting plan from our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains effortlessly through your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their number, so even if 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 site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder in the account that it's going to open, create personalized 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 domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one place and you will be able to access many functions for each one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers haven't got a limit for the number of subdomains you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes only a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting CP and during the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. When the subdomain is set up, you can access logs and visitor statistics or swiftly jump to the website files for it inside the File Manager area by using quick access buttons. All subdomains that you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you'll be able to find and manage any of them easily.
