A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite practical if you'd like to have different websites which are connected in some way. For example, you may have a web-based store under the main domain as well as a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your clients to ask questions and share views concerning your products. The benefit of employing a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
