A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you want to use some feature that is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any risk of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
