A subdomain is a subsection of your website that can exist as a new website without a new domain name. Use subdomains to create memorable URLs for different content areas of your site. For example, you can create a subdomain for your blog that is accessible through blog.example.com and www.example.com/blog
Subdomains can point to different sections of your website. In order to create a subdomain in your cPanel account, follow the next steps.
