A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school site. If you work with 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 sites separate from each other.
Subdomains in Shared Hosting
Each and every shared hosting plan which we offer will permit you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few clicks in your website hosting CP. They are going to be listed in the area where you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can effortlessly keep track of every one of them. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you are also going to have numerous options that you can pick from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain will use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you are going to have is completely up to you because we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
