A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Web. For example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the main school site. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain website, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
