A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school site. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
