    Well i find it more natural to type a subdomain than a folder, also if you move the folder or update the site you can update the subdomain and not lose customers through incorect bookmarks and so on.

    A subdomain also has it's own A record, meaning you could technically point it to a completely different server if needs be.

    Hello,

    The advantage of setting up a subdomain is that you can access particular pages which you have placed to different folder. Means if you have one department like sales and you have made separate webpage’s for them then, you can access that site through your domain using sub domain like this http://sales.domainname.com/

    The disadvantage of the subdomain is that if you have install SSL on your domain at that time you can access site via secure URL liked https://domainame.com/ but you can not access your subdomian site via secure URL like https://sales.domianame.com/

    :cool:
