A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, 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 entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very practical if you'd like to have different sites which are connected in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share opinions about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
