A subdomain is a web address, that's under a main, or a root domain. An illustration is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain address, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own website and records i.e. aside from employing the domain name as part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and even hosted by a different provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite beneficial if you want to have different sites which are connected in some way. For instance, you can have a web-based store under the main domain and a forum under a subdomain so as to offer means for your clients to ask questions or share experiences regarding your products. The benefit of using a subdomain instead of a subfolder is that the websites are going to be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.
Subdomains in Web Hosting

Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server plan, you'll be able to create as many subdomains as you'd like because this feature is unrestricted. Since the web hosting plans are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the amount of subdomains. Our state-of-the-art Hepsia CP will permit you to create a new subdomain with no more than a few clicks, to choose which folder it'll access within the account, to enable FrontPage Extensions for it, to create custom error pages, to set a shared or a dedicated IP address if you have one, and more. To make it easier for you, all subdomains are going to be listed under their root domain, so that you can easily see and handle them. With quick access links, you will also have the ability to open the website files for any of the subdomains that you have or see its DNS records.
