A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own web site and records and can even be hosted with a different company if you need to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the websites separated is also less risky in the case of a script security breach.
