A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you wish to have different websites that are related in some way. For instance, you can have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
