How To Create A Sub Site In SharePoint Online


Before I explain about sub sites, I would like to share a few ideas about the hierarchy of SharePoint. There are four levels in SharePoint.SharePoint
You can create multiple numbers of sub sites under a Site collectionin SharePoint. The web application is the parent of the Farm in SharePoint .

Site Collection is the child of the web Application in SharePoint and the sub web is like a grandchild of the site collection in SharePoint.

What are Sub sites?

There is no difference between a Site collection and sub sites; only the hierarchy is different. You can create a multiple number of sub sites under a site collection in Sharepoint . You can inherit the permission from the parent site collection to child sub sites . Below, I have listed a few mandatory fields to create a site collection in SharePoint.
  1. Title
  2. Description
  3. URL
  4. TemplateType
  5. Permission
