How to create a subdomain

Subdomains

Subdomains give us more flexibility in how we wish a website to be setup. For example crystalstaging.com.au is a domain we own which we place all our staging websites on. For this to happen we create a subdomain for each website. This allows multiple websites to run off the same domain which we can test. For example domain1.crystalstaging.com.au and domain2.crystalstaging.com.au could be different clients websites which both run off our one domain. Being innovative is the key to using a sub domain to its full potential.
