A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than 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.
