A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance 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 also be hosted with a different company if you want to use a certain feature which is not offered 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 acquire your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk 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.
