A subdomain is a website url, which is under a main, or a root domain. One example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be fully independent and also hosted by a separate company. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you'd like to have different web sites which are related in some way. For instance, you can have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences about your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
