A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and even hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain can be extremely useful if you want to have different websites that are associated 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 supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views about your products. The best thing about using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
