A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for students as well as the primary school website. If you work with 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 each other.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Each web hosting package we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They'll all be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep an eye on all of them. In addition, you can access a lot of functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While setting up a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can select from - define the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you since we haven't limited this feature for any of our plans.
