A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for pupils on top of the primary school site. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Every single web hosting plan we provide will allow you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can very easily keep track of all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you will also have numerous options that you can select from - specify the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is entirely up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
