A subdomain is the part of the web address that is before a domain name and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the primary school website. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the sites separate from one another.
