A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different company. Using a subdomain can be extremely handy if you want to have different web sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
