A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing 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 forth. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site 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 site, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school site. If you are using subdomains rather than subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared hosting package from our company, you will be able to create subdomains effortlessly using your Hepsia website hosting CP. We've decided not to limit their amount, so in case you host only one domain address in the account, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you wish and have a different site for each one. During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to select the folder inside the account that it'll 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, plus much more. All hosted domains and the subdomains that you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access a lot of functions for each one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
