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 name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as 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 wish to have different web sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
