A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the main school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Web Hosting
Each cloud web hosting package which we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily keep tabs on all of them. In addition, you can access lots of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have lots of options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you'll have is totally up to you as we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Adding a new subdomain inside the account takes only a few mouse clicks within the Hepsia hosting CP and throughout the process you can choose the folder the subdomain is going to access if it will be different from the default one, set up custom-made error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address rather than the shared server one provided you have added this upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. As soon as the subdomain is created, you will be able to access logs and visitor statistics or you can quickly jump to the website files for it within the File Manager area by using fast access buttons. All subdomains that you've got in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage every single one of them easily.
