A subdomain is a website url, that's under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and even hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain could be very beneficial if you wish to have different websites that are associated in some way. As an example, you can have an on-line store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share views concerning your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the sites will be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
