A subdomain is a website address, that is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be completely independent and also hosted by a different service provider. Employing a subdomain could be very handy if you wish to have different web sites that are connected in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your clients to ask questions or share views regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the web sites will be separated, so you can update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
