A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an illustration, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Website Hosting

Our website hosting packages will permit you to set up many subdomains for any domain hosted within your account without any problem. As long as the main domain name is added, it will take 2 clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and administration. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using quick access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or site files for that particular subdomain. We haven't set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you want.
