A subdomain is a web address, which is under a main, or a root domain. An example is something.domain.com, where domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Each and every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be entirely independent and also hosted by a different company. Employing a subdomain can be quite useful if you want to have different web sites that are related in some way. As an example, you may have an online store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain in order to provide means for your customers to ask questions or share opinions regarding your products. The main advantage of using a subdomain as opposed to a subfolder is that the web sites are going to be separated, so you're able to update one of them or perform maintenance not affecting the other.
