A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An illustration 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 a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely useful if you'd like to have different web sites that are related in some way. For example, you can have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions or share thoughts regarding your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
