A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the main school site. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting packages will allow you to set up hundreds of subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take 2 clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Using our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited number of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It requires a couple of mouse clicks to create a new subdomain and throughout the process you'll be able to add unique error pages for it, select 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 have within the account will be grouped under their root domain from a to z and you will be able to see and control them with ease. Via instant access buttons and right-click menus you'll also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or see logs, visitor stats and other info about any one of your subdomains.
