A subdomain is part of a web address which is under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain because the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own site and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can also have a forum where they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.
