A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
