A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different web sites which are related in some way. As an example, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share thoughts regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
