A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Web. As an illustration, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you can even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the primary school website. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the websites separate from each other.
