A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate 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 site. If you use subdomains rather than subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every shared hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks inside your hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and a lot more. While setting up a new subdomain, you are also going to have many options that you can choose from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our packages.
