A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of using 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 you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school website. If you are using subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy a shared website hosting package through us, you will be able to create subdomains easily using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.

During the creation of a subdomain, you'll be able to select the folder within the account that it will open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domain addresses and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you will be able to gain access to many functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.

Once the subdomain is set up, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it in the File Manager section using quick access buttons. All subdomains you've got inside the account are going to be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you are going to be able to find and control any of them effortlessly.
