A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of 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 college students in addition to the main school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Every website hosting plan which we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks inside your website hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you easily keep tabs on every one of them. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you will also have many options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is completely up to you because we have not limited this feature for any of our packages.
