A subdomain is a website address, that's under a main, or a root domain name. One example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain name, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every single subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate company. Using a subdomain can be very handy if you'd like to have different sites that are connected in some way. For instance, you could have an on-line store under the main domain plus a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views about your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so that you can update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
