A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain name and you have probably seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The 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 could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school site. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting

No matter the plan that you choose, you will be able to create hundreds of subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. You'll have access to lots of functions for any of them with only a click, so from the exact same section where you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. Unlike other companies, we haven't restricted the amount of subdomains which you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package, you're going to be able to create as many subdomains as you wish as this feature is unrestricted. Considering that the hosting packages are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the number of subdomains.
