A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 provider. Employing a subdomain could be very beneficial if you want to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views about your products. The advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
