|Welcome in Techzauto.com.Now in this post You will know about SubDomain, as I told you in the last few post-times, that the first domain name to create a website is necessary, and you cannot create your own website without buying a domain name. Besides domain, Sub-Domain and Addon Domain are also of great importance. Today we will try to understand SubDomain in this post.|
What is Subdomain ?
You may have noticed that many websites often create subdomain under their main domain, by not creating separate websites to provide different services, such as Google is a website, but there are many services for which Google has not created a separate website and has a sub domain such as:
- video.google.com for Google Videos
- site.google.com for Google Site
- adword.google.com for Google Adword
- mail.google.com for Gmail
- adsense.google.com for Google Adsense
- image.google.com for Image search
- maps.google.com for Google Map
Similarly, there are many subDomain google. By looking at this, you may have understood that there are many use of sub.domain what happens to sub.domain, if you create a website and want to publish it in another language, you can do this hindi.yourwebsite.com or english.yourwebsite.com.
Sub-domain means domain associated with your main website domain name, also called second level domain.
Don’t understand? Let’s give example.
The domain name of your main website is something like this – sample.com, we call it “Top level domain”
Now in this main site you can create several subdomain such as – forum.sample.com, support.sample.com, help.sample.com, ask.sample.com
Now you must have understood what happens to Subdomain
Suppose you need to add support forum or Ask forum to your website, you can create it through Subdomain.
How to create Sudomain
Before you create a Sub domain for your website,
you should know how many sub domains your hosting plan allows or does.
Some Web hosting providers give their user the facility of a limited sub domain.
so if you don’t need a sub domain, keep in mind that you’re getting subdomain when buying hosting. The hosting I use really gives you a great service.
To create Sub Domain you need to login to your hosting account or cPanel, if the hosting I purchased gives me a cPanel, I can login to it.
If you are also given login detail of cPanel by your hosting provider, and login to the same or login to the website of the hosting account
What to do after login in cPanel for Subdomain
After login to cPanel you need to go to the Domain section where, you will see the option of all domains from which to select subdomains.
After selecting subdomains, you will see a small form in front of you in which you need to add a sub domain as shown below
Here I typed jobs instead of subdomain, which will make my new domain hindi.techzauto.com.
The second option is domain from where you can select the domain as I selected Techzauto.com which are my website.
You don’t have to do anything in Document Root here you will see subdomain.
Now, after doing so, click on create so that your sub domain will be ready.
Install WordPress on Subdomain
WordPress installation process no need to tell me, just like you have done wordpress installation on your main domain on Cpanel, just like you have to install wordpress on sub-domain.
All hosting company’s Cpanel varies, but the wordpress installation process is the same.
If you’re on Bluehost, click install wordpress in Cpanel.
Now you can create a separate website or blog on your new subdomain, for which you need to go to the App installer and install WordPress or any other CMS.
So this way you can create multi sites on your website. Those who want to create a support, ask forum for their site can create this process by follow. If you need to create a asking or help forum, you can buy the wordpress themes of the Theme engine.
You can still create a testing site if you want to create a testing site.
Don’t forget to submit its sitemap after creating a site on one thing and sub-domain.
