What is SubDomain ?

Subdomain : You must have heard this term if you run a website or blog, but if you do not know about the subdomain, then you will not be able to take many benefits. let us know what is a Subdomain.


What is SubDomain?

To understand Subdomain, first, you have to understand what is a domain. The domain is the name of your website like www.imbochi.com This is the name of our website. This is the main address or web address of your site and the Domain is run from the system, it is called DNS
For more information about the domain, you can read this post - ↗ What is Domain Name? 👈

An entire domain name is divided into three parts.

  • Top Level Domain
  • Second Level Domain
  • Sub Domain

For example, we take www.imbochi.com -

Here there is .COM which is the top-level domain of this domain name which I have explained in my post. IMBOCHI is the second-level domain of this domain name and you will be surprised to know that WWW is the first domain of your domain name (Subdomain).

The subdomain is used to create a sub-page for your website. You can also call it a branch of your website where some different kind of stuff is found, You can use it as an address if you run an educational site and you have to create a blog or forum for it, then you can use Subdomain, it works just like a domain.

Interesting facts about Subdomain


  • WWW is a subdomain but you can never use it on your site as a subdomain.
  • You do not have to pay for all domains.
  • We can add up to 100 Subdomains inside a domain.
  • You can run multiple websites at the expense of a single domain.
  • A subdomain can be of multiple levels.

You create a blog on Google's blogspot.com, the free one in which blogspot.com always remains behind the name of the blog . Here you are given the only subdomain on blogspot.com.

For example, we take Google. its main domain is www.google.co.in but when google launched google Maps, for this, the subdomain of google.co.in was used. You can open Google Maps by going to https://maps.google.co.in/maps.Now many Google sites are running on Google's Subdomain -

  • images.google.com
  • mail.google.com
  • docs.google.com
  • translate.google.com
  • news.google.com
  • video.google.com
  • groups.google.com

You will see that its domain is Google itself but the subdomain is different and the other site opens on it.

Apart from this, some people create websites in many languages, this site is different but they are interlinked with subdomains, for example, we talk about Wikipedia, main domain of Wikipedia is www.wikipedia.org but Articles are written in many languages ​​on it so here the subdomain is made according to the language.so that they do not mix with each other.

  • For English - en.wikipedia.org
  • For Hindi - hi.wikipedia.org

Here the name of Wikipedia was also not changed and according to the language many websites have also been created which can be managed separately.

So in this way, you can give new experience to your users using  domains.
