A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as name.example.com. Actually, even in www.example.com the "www" part is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain could have its own site and records and can also be hosted through a different company if you need to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current 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. In addition, you can have a forum where they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains instead of subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down when you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping your websites separated is less risky in case of a script security breach.
