A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. 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. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
