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. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site 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 as well as the primary school site. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular website, not mentioning that it's going to be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
