Subdomain Information

subdomain is also known as a “tertiary domain”. This refers to the section of the URL before the domain name. The “www” in most website URLs is actually a subdomain. You can set the subdomain to any value you like. Some domain registrars include a certain number of subdomains in their domain service, while others may charge a fee for creating subdomains. Consult your domain registrar’s documentation for details on how to create subdomains according to your plan.

Blogger’s subdomains

Blogger supports all subdomains. When you first set up your custom domain, Blogger actually says “http://blog

example.com.” you cannot specify yourdomain.com as a URL, it must include some form of subdomain containing only “www”. So Blogger gives you the option to redirect yourdomain.com to “www.yourdomain”. com” even if a custom subdomain is used. Setting up a subdomain redirects the old Blogger URL (username.blogspot.com) to your domain. Any links using the old URL will still work.
