A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, 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 totally independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you want to have different sites that are related in some way. For example, you could have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions and / or share experiences about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
