This section of the docs states “We strongly recommend that you use a www subdomain” and then goes on to say that “A custom subdomain is a type of subdomain that doesn’t use the standard www subdomain part”
What if I wanted to do both? use a custom subdomain and www at the same time. For example:
Would I still get the 3 mentioned benefits of using “www” (CDN, DOS protection, etc.) while also being able to use the “blog” subdomain?
From my limited DNS experience, I don’t see how “www.blog.example.com” would be any different than “www.example.com”, but I don’t know what is happening on the github pages side of things and the documentation isn’t 100% clear.
Any clarification will be greatly appreciated!
Edit: Also, for the CNAME file in the github repo is it suggested to put “blog.example.com” or “www.blog.example.com”? Are both equivalent? (assuming you have www CNAME setup on your DNS provider too).
