What is a Subdomain | A subdomain’s use in creating a website | Create Subdomains with Bluehost

If you are remotely involved with anything to do with a website, you must know what a subdomain is. You must have seen it when you visited a website. You can find it in the URL in the search bar.

Subdomains change slightly based on your location on a site or the web page you view.

An example of a subdomain would be ‘example.com’ would be your website, and ‘blog.example.com’ would be your subdomain, which would be a domain for your blog section.

Another subdomain example would be, ‘bluehost.com’ and ‘bluehost.com/blog/’

Why is it important to know what a subdomain is?

1) Knowing what a subdomain is can be helpful in several ways:
Organising your website: If your website is large with multiple sections, subdomains can help you organise your content, making it easier for visitors to navigate.

2) Improving SEO: By using subdomains for different topics or categories, you can target specific keywords and improve your search engine rankings.

3) Creating separate web applications: With subdomains you can create separate web applications or services, such as a blog or an e-commerce store, and manage them independently from the main website.

4) Enhancing security: By using subdomains to separate different services or applications, you can improve the security of your website. For example, you can use a separate subdomain for your payment gateway, which can be secured with SSL encryption.
