Find out more about subdomains, how you can create them and how they can help your online presence.
A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain could be very useful if you'd like to have different websites which are connected in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
