A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every 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 totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Using a subdomain can be quite practical if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
