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, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be very handy if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. For example, you could have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
