A subdomain is a web address, that is under a main, or a root domain name. An example is something.domain.com, in which domain.com is the main domain, while "something" is the subdomain below it. Every subdomain can have its own site and records i.e. apart from employing the domain name as a part of the whole web address, a subdomain can be totally independent and also hosted by a separate provider. Employing a subdomain can be quite handy if you'd like to have different websites which are related in some way. As an example, you may have an on-line store under the main domain along with a forum under a subdomain in order to supply means for your customers to ask questions or share experiences concerning your products. The best thing about employing a subdomain rather than a subfolder is that the websites will be separated, so you are able to update one of them or perform maintenance without affecting the other.

During the creation of a subdomain, you are able to pick the folder in the account that it will open, set up customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions and error logs, pick a server shared IP address or a dedicated one if you have such, and a lot more. All hosted domains and the subdomains you create for them are going to be conveniently listed in alphabetical order in one spot and you will be able to access a lot of functions for every one of them through right-click context menus - records, files, etc.
