A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different company if you need to use a specific feature that is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is also less risky in case there is a script security breach.
