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 surfing around the Internet. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains instead of subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.

All of them are going to be listed in one place together with the domain addresses hosted in the account and grouped under their own domain in order to make their administration a lot easier. No matter the plan that you select, you will be able to create many subdomains and set their access folder or create custom error pages in the process. Additionally, you'll have access to numerous functions for any of them with just a mouse click, so from the same section in which you create them you can access their DNS records, files, visitor statistics, etc. In contrast to other providers, we have not limited the number of subdomains that you can have even if you host just one domain in the account.
