A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you wish to have different websites which are associated in some way. As an example, you could have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
