A subdomain is a part of a web address which is under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is only "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own website and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that isn't offered by your current service provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can talk about the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you are going to avoid any probability of all websites 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.
