I have a domain name and a live website. I want to create some subdomains so that they appear as separate websites in Search engines.
For Example take Blogspot. x.blogspot.com and y.blogspot.com are separate websites.

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
This is normal behavior. I am not sure what your question is exactly. But here goes.
I am going to assume you are using Apache and host your DNS.
Create the sub-domain on your server however you need. For Apache, this would be almost exactly like any other domains website. You can find the configuration files in /etc/apache2/sites-available or /etc/local/apache2/sites-available. If there is a website already on the web server, you will see the configuration file named something like mydomain.com.conf. Use this file as an example and create your sub-domains. Create a file for each sub-domain like sub-domain.domain.com and cut and paste the contents of your original domain configuration into each. You will need to change some directives.
1] Change your ServerName to something like sub-domain.domain.com to reflect your sub-domain.
2] Remove ServerAlias.
3] Create a root directory for your sub-domain change DocumentRoot and .
4] You may need to change your log file locations as well.
You may have a control panel for this.
Create an entry in your DNS server for the sub-domain. Using the same IP address as the parent domain is fine depending upon your set-up. I am sure it will work okay assuming that all of the sites will be hosted on the same system. You will need an A record for each sub-domain. I cannot tell you how to create the record for your system. I am assuming you will have a control panel for this.
That is it.
Search engines treat all sub-domains websites as separate sites and separate from the parent domain.
