A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an illustration, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. 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 separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students on top of the main school website. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Website Hosting
If you obtain a cloud website hosting package through our company, you're going to be able to create subdomains easily via your Hepsia hosting CP. We've decided not to restrict their amount, so even when you host only 1 domain in the account, you are going to be able to create as many subdomains as you want and have a different site for every one. During the creation of a subdomain, you can pick the folder inside the account that it'll open, set up personalized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, choose a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, plus much more. All hosted domain names and the subdomains you create for them will be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one location and you'll be able to access many functions for every one of them with right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
