A subdomain is the part of the web address which is before a domain name and you've almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around the Web. For instance, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The advantage 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 separate server. The practical use is that one could have a supplementary site, such as an e-learning portal for college students in addition to the main school website. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a particular site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from each other.
