    I need some assistance regarding my site. If i make a subdomain like buy.example.com is it the same as example.com/buy? Because i have a subdomain and when i type that same subdomain name like example.com/buy it shows the exact same content as my subdomain

    It isn't duplicated information, both versions of the URL go to the same location.

    Basically when you create the sub-domain by default it will create one directory inside the document root. Hence if you try to browse either "example.com/buy" or buy.example.com you will get same content. However, in many web panel there is option to change the default location of sub-domain directory.

    google treat sub domain as different domain than main domain
