A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils as well as the primary school site. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

Every hosting plan we offer will enable you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your web hosting CP. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep an eye on all of them. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is entirely up to you as we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.

All subdomains you've got in the account are going to be arranged under their root domain from a to z and you'll be able to see and manage them without difficulty. By using quick access buttons and right-click menus you will also be able to jump to the website files in the File Manager section or see logs, visitor stats and other info about any of your subdomains.
