A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share thoughts concerning your products. The best thing about using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
