A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart 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 service provider. Using a subdomain can be extremely practical if you wish to have different websites that are connected in some way. For instance, you may have an on-line store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share thoughts concerning your products. The advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
