A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site 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 even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different sites that are associated 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 offer means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions concerning your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
