Sub-domains

Cpanel allows you to create and manage sub-domains for your web-hosting account

A subdomain is a "subsection" of your website that can exist as a subdirectory of your /public_html/ (document root) directory or your home directory

Subdomains use a prefix in conjunction with the domain name

If the registered domain name is rshweb.com, with the desired subdomain of "domain" would look like:
domain.rshweb.com
Or other examples might look like:
ssl.rshweb.com
hosting.rshweb.com
family.rshweb.com

This type of Domain or sub-domain works just like a separate Domain Name. Even the Search Engines treat these as completely different domain names

You can also use subdomains to create unique user account or for a specific subject. This is useful if you have a blog, or any other type of website that uses a domain specifically titled for a user or subject
