How To Create and Update Subdomains


What is a Subdomain?

As your web presence increases, you may require the addition of subdomains for your website. Subdomains help you organize your content and provide additional advantages with navigation. Subdomains are like children to your parent or top-level domain. You can put a page of your site to the subdomain, like shop.domainname.com. There are cases that customers create a separate website and put it to the subdomain.
