What is a subdomain?

A subdomain is an addition to your domain name that acts as a subcategory of your overall website. Your original domain name is your primary domain, while subdomains piggyback off of the original.

For example, let’s say you want to have a specific section of your website that’s designated for customer success stories, and your domain name is www.myawesomebusiness.com. In this case, you could add a subdomain called “stories,” which can be accessed through stories.myawesomebusiness.com, or www.myawesomebusiness.com/stories.

And, if you want to get even more specific, you can add multiple subdomain levels. If, for example, you want a real estate section within your business success stories, you can create the URL realestate.stories.myawesomebusiness.com.  

Subdomains can be up to 25 characters long, and you can add up to 100 subdomains per domain name.
