A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely beneficial if you wish to have different sites that are associated in some way. For instance, you could have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions and share views regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
