A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on another 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 website. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Every single web hosting package that we offer will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your website hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep track of every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you'll have is 100 % up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.
