A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for example name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Each subdomain can have its own website and records and can also be hosted using a different provider if you wish to use a certain feature that's not offered by your current service provider. An illustration for using a subdomain is if you have a business site along with an online store under a subdomain where customers can buy your products. You can also have a forum in which they can discuss the products and by using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is less risky in the case of a script security breach.
