Creating a sub domain on your Hosting
This FAQ will help you to set up a subdomain, which are typically used to offer different versions of the same website.
For example, you could use a subdomain to separate your online shop from the rest of your domain, using store.mydomain.com. Or, you could use en.mydomain.com and de.mydomain.com for English and German language versions of your site respectively.
