A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll 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 Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting packages will permit you to set up many subdomains for any domain hosted inside your account without any hassle. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and select what folder it will open (if different from the default one), create unique 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 convenient access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can see the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total number of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
