A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. For example, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different 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 can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Shared Web Hosting
Every single shared web hosting plan we provide will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can very easily keep tabs on them all. In addition, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains via right-click context menus - for instance, you can view or modify their DNS records, access the website files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have a number of options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, set unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. How many subdomains you are going to have is totally up to you as we haven't limited this feature for any one of our plans.
