A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain and you've most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to 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 on top of the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting plans will enable you to create countless subdomains for every domain name hosted inside your account without any difficulty. As long as the main domain address is added, it requires two mouse clicks to create a subdomain and pick what folder it'll open (if different from the default one), set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions, set a shared IP address or a dedicated one, and more. All subdomains will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order under their main domain for easy access and management. By right-clicking on any one of them and by using fast access buttons you can view the error logs, visitor statistics or website files for that particular subdomain. We have not set a restriction for the amount of subdomains that you can create with any of our plans, so you can have as many as you need.
