A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school website. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Web Hosting
Each web hosting plan that we provide will allow you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your website hosting CP. They will all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep an eye on them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our plans.
