A subdomain is a website address, which is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. apart from using the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a separate service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different websites that are related in some way. As an example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain in order to offer means for your clients to ask questions and / or share views concerning your products. The main advantage of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
