  • What is Subdomain?

    Can anyone help me in understanding what is a Subdomain?

    Yes, I too wanted to know what is Subdomain. And what is the difference between Subdomain and Domain?

      First of all, I will tell you what is Domain and then will explain what is Sub-Domain.
      Domain: The address at which Internet visitors can access your website is known as a domain name. IP addresses are a set of numbers used by computers. Living beings, on the other hand, have a hard time remembering long strings of numbers. As a result, domain names were created and are now used to identify things on the Internet instead of IP addresses.
      Whereas a Subdomain name is a piece of information that is added to the beginning of the domain name of a website. The most common subdomain is www, which stands for World Wide Web. Subdomains are also frequently used to distinguish a segment of a website from the main site.
      Example- shop.abcd.com, here “shop” is the subdomain, and “abcd” is the main domain.

        Ok, so subdomain comes before the main domain, right?

          Yes, exactly, The difference between the Domain and Subdomain are:
          1. Subdomains are useful but optional. Whereas Domains are a must.
          2. Domains can exist without Sub- Domains. But Subdomains cannot exist without domains.
          These differences I know.

              Subdomains are also known as child domains

                What is the need for a Subdomain is the main question. Why do you need a subdomain when you already have a domain name?
                See, One of the most basic reasons for creating a subdomain is to organize or divide site information into parts.
