A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in various 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 different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school website. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Each and every shared web hosting package we offer will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. They will all be listed in the section in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to very easily keep an eye on all of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
