A subdomain is a website url, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which 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 using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be very practical if you'd like to have different web sites which are associated in some way. For instance, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share thoughts about your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
