A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing world wide web. As an illustration, many websites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The main benefit of using 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 you can have a supplementary site, like an e-learning portal for students in addition to the main school site. If you work with subdomains rather than 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.
