A SubSite will be created in SharePoint 2013.

The sites created are stored in the form of a hierarchy. The first position in the hierarchy is held by a special type of site. This top rank site is termed as a Site Collection. Each site within the Site Collection is termed as a SubSite. For the purpose of creating a Site Collection, users need to get a permit cleared.

So, when you follow the above mentioned steps or directions, you will be creating a SubSite within a specific Site Collection. Therefore, it is mandatory to seek permission form the Site Collection. However, there is not much difference in the use of a SubSite or a Site Collection. For any user, both the sites appear same and function in the same manner. Only the difference lies in the navigation process and security settings. Also, there are3 several differences in the features hosted by both the sites.
