A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain and you've probably seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Internet. For instance, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate 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 students on top of the main school website. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
