A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

Every shared web hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily monitor them all. Additionally, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. What number of subdomains you'll have is completely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan, you will be able to create as many subdomains as you want because this feature is unrestricted.

To make it easier for you, all subdomains will be listed under their root domain, so that you can effortlessly see and handle them. Through quick access links, you will also be able to open the site files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
