A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students as well as the main school site. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Every single website hosting plan which we offer will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep an eye on all of them. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have numerous options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.

When the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor statistics or easily jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area using instant access buttons. All subdomains that you have within the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you will be able to find and control any of them easily.
