A sub-domain is a subsection of your website that exists as a subdirectory in your public_html folder. Subdomains use a prefix in conjunction with the domain name. For example, if the registered domain name was example.com, a subdomain could be sales.example.com. Subdomains can be useful for creating unique user accounts for “vanity domains.”
This is helpful if, for example, you have a blog, or any other type of website that uses a domain specifically titled for a user.
