A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain, such as 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 just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own site and records and can even be hosted using a different provider if you want to use some feature which is not offered by your current service provider. One example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. Additionally, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by using subdomains instead of subfolders you'll 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 event of a script security breach.
