A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Hosting
plans will allow you to create countless subdomains for every domain hosted within your account without any difficulty. Assuming that the main domain is added, it will take two mouse clicks to set up a subdomain and choose what folder it's going to open (if different from the default one), create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, plus much more. All subdomains are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that specific subdomain. We have not set a limit for the total amount of subdomains which you can create with any one of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
