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