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 in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the primary 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 secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans will enable you to set up numerous subdomains for every domain address hosted within your account without any hassle. Provided that the main domain name is added, it takes 2 mouse clicks to set up 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 convenient access and control. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you wish.
