A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For example, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school website. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Every single shared hosting plan we supply will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They'll 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 effortlessly keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access many 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're also going to have a number of options that you can pick from - define the default access folder, set custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you because we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
