A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the main school site. If you work with subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Every website hosting package which we provide will enable you to create many subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks within your hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly keep an eye on every one of them. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
