A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you wish to have different sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
