A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain could have its own site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a feature that isn't offered by your current provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business site as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you will avoid any probability of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.
