As the name specifies, in this blog we are going to discuss a new feature in cPanel that is about Subdomains.

Let’s see what is Subdomain?

A Subdomain is a subsection of your website or in other words, we can say that it is a separate and unique website with its own contents but without a new domain name. Existing domain name can be used for creating a memorable URL for the different content area of your site or you can change it to another name. For Ex: If you have a Forum section in your websites then, you can create a Subdomain for accessing Forum section of your websites like forum.domainname.com or www.domainname.com/forum.
