A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own web site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you wish to use some feature that's not provided by your current service provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can buy your products. You can even have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you will avoid any risk of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping your sites separated is also more secure in the case of a script security breach.
