Add and manage a subdomain

The following article describes how to add and manage a subdomain from your customer area.

What is a subdomain?

Subdomains are the part of a domain that comes before the main domain name.

For example:
magic.fr is a domain
www.magic.fr is a sub-domain
support.magic.fr is also a sub-domain
order.magic.com is also a sub-domain

You can use all kind of letters from A to Z, numbers from 0 to 9 and the hyphen (-). The name must begin and end with a letter or a number. Blank space is definitely not allowed.

why do you need a subdomain ?

A subdomain allows to shorten URL when it is too long.

It allows websites to separate and organize content for a specific function, such as a blog or an online store.

For international companies, subdomains are used to create different language versions of a website such as en.yoursite.com or fr.yoursite.com, and even a mobile version like m.yoursite.com.

You can also use subdomains for geographical locations. For example london.yoursite.com, newyork.yoursite.com, paris.yoursite.com, etc.

For private use, you can use your first or last name as a subdomain.

A subdomain URL will allow you to tie in keywords relevant to your site, which is a great opportunity for you to improve SEO rankings based on those keywords.
