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" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different provider if you need to use a feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in case there is a script security breach.
