You have bought your domain, created a website, and want to expand it with more pages, content, and even another market. If you are about to take any of these steps, setting up a subdomain to your main domain is certainly the next step in your development.

A subdomain allows you to add new pages to your main domain. The prefix, which is added before your main domain, is used to redistribute the sections on your website.

Subdomains are most frequently set up for company blogs. This is necessary because the information on the blog is often different from that about the company. The topics covered are varied and extensive, and this makes it necessary to set up a subdomain for the blog.

Adding these subdomains is used by large websites, online stores, or blogs. Brands install subdomain content to expand their website itself by adding new pages to it. For large stores, this measure is necessary because one page can perform many actions and contain a lot of information. If you install an architecture on another subdomain, working with the website becomes easier.

If you offer multilingual content via cross-page loading, you must do this on a different subdomain of your website.

No matter what your goal is, whether you're expanding your online store or creating a blog for your corporate website, be careful with this action.
