Imagine that you own a company or store site and, for example, bought a shared host site with PrestaShop content management system on them. Now you have decided that for better branding, the news magazine section Or blog, launch your site with a content management system like WordPress. Still, your main web host may only be suitable for hosting a store site like PrestaShop, and WordPress may not work best on them, which many of The big sites and brands do is launch a subdomain inside their main site host and then buy a WordPress host that is dedicated to hosting WordPress.
