A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an example, many websites such as 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 an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Our web hosting plans will permit you to create many subdomains for every domain name hosted in your account without any hassle. 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), create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and a lot more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for effortless access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that specific subdomain. We haven't set a limit for the total number of subdomains you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
