A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where 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 a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The benefit of 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.
