A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every single subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you need to use a specific feature which is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can purchase your products. Additionally, you can have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you are going to avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
