Hello Duda Builders! πŸ‘‹

Pedro here from Duda's Brazil office. I want to share how easy it is to create a subdomain for a website to help add value while staying organized.

How to Add a Subdomain to a Duda Website 🌐

First, make sure that your website's main domain is set up correctly with the correct DNS records. It should have two A records and one CNAME record.

For a subdomain, you'll only need to add 1 CNAME record. Learn More

Why Have a Subdomain?

Overall, adding subdomains can enhance your website's organization, SEO, flexibility, localization, testing, and brand identity, providing a better experience for visitors and site administrators.

Two of the most common reasons for adding a subdomain are for placing a blog or online store.

Also, search engines may treat subdomains as separate entities, giving you more opportunities to rank for specific keywords. This can be beneficial if your website has different sections targeting different audiences or topics.

Have a question about the setup or want to run an idea by me? Leave a comment below! Thanks πŸ˜„πŸ§‘

    "Two of the most common reasons for adding a subdomain are for placing a blog or online store."

    True. Particularly when your blog/store is 3rd-party.
    Almost ALL of my Duda sites employ sub-domains. Why? Because Duda's multi-language (still) doesn't allow for blogging. Forces me to pay for 2 or 3 instances of Duda for one website.
    I wish Duda would finally do the right thing and enable proper multi-language, complete with blog. Been waiting 8 years :-(

    Fingers crossed.

    If I understand this correctly, this means that every subdomain is its own site with its own hosting fee. Correct? There is no way to incorporate a subdomain within a website's main hosting cost?

    More specifically, is it possible to have a subdomain point to a specific page within its main domain site? And maybe that doesn't even make sense….?
