A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an illustration, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The best thing about employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school site. If you work with subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
