A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which 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 employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different sites that are related in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.

Subdomains in Shared Hosting

They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to easily keep tabs on all of them. Furthermore, you can access a lot of functions for any of the subdomains through right-click context menus - for example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the site files, and a lot more.
