A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. As an example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can 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 students in addition to the main school site. If you are using subdomains rather than 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 sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for any domain name hosted in your account without any problem. As long as the main domain is added, it takes two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), set custom 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 convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
With our semi-dedicated server plans, you will be able to create an unrestricted number of subdomains for any one of the domains which you add as hosted in the account. It will take a couple of clicks to set up a new subdomain and during the process you will be able to add tailor-made error pages for it, decide 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 that you have inside the account will be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you'll be able to see and manage them with ease. Through quick access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files within the File Manager area or view logs, visitor stats and other info about any of your subdomains.
