What precisely is a subdomain? How could you set up one? How can it help your online presence?
A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing 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 can be quite handy if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than 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.
