A subdomain is a part of a web address that is under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, 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 web site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you want to use a certain feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website as well as an online store under a subdomain where customers can acquire your products. You can even have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by using subdomains as opposed to subfolders you will avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
