A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school website. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Every web hosting plan we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly monitor them all. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can choose from - specify the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we haven't limited this feature for any one of our packages.
