A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you want to use a certain feature that's 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 purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in case there is a script security breach.
