A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration is something.domain.com, where 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. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you may have an online store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
