A subdomain is part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain because 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 provider if you need to use a specific feature which isn't provided by your current provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any probability of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the sites separated is also less risky in the event of a script security breach.
