A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website 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 website, such as an e-learning portal for college students aside from the primary school site. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Every single website hosting plan we provide will permit you to create many subdomains with no more than a few clicks within your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, to help you effortlessly monitor all of them. Additionally, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, plus much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or choose if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you will have is totally up to you since we have not limited this feature for any one of our packages.
