A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which 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 employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you'd like to have different sites which are related in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions and / or share thoughts concerning your products. The benefit of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
