With the transition from classic to modern SharePoint, the way we organise our content has drastically changed.
In this chapter we talk about the classic approach of creating subsites to split up and secure our information and documents.
Next we look at how the modern idea of Hub Sites can achieve similar results.
Sites are isolated containers that stand on their own. Obviously, you would like to set up hierarchy between your sites so that content can be structured and configuration can be shared between the sites.
