A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you'd like to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
