A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several 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 different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the main school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting plans will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains for every domain address hosted inside your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it requires two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for convenient access and administration. By right-clicking on any of them and by using instant access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers

With our semi-dedicated server plans, you're going to be able to create an unlimited amount of subdomains for any of the domains that you add as hosted in the account. It will take a few clicks to set up a new subdomain and throughout the process you are going to be able to add custom-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 which you have within the account are going to be arranged under their root domain in alphabetical order and you're going to be able to see and control all of them without difficulty. By using quick access buttons and right-click menus you'll be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager area or check logs, visitor statistics and other information about any of your subdomains.
