A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each 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 separate provider. Using a subdomain can be very useful if you want to have different web sites that are connected in some way. For example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
