A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use a certain feature which is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can acquire your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all websites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also more secure in the event of a script security breach.
