A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside 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 quite useful if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your customers to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The main advantage of using 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 not affecting the other.
