A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. For instance, many sites like Wikipedia have versions in several languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have a separate website 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, like an e-learning portal for students as well as the main school site. If you are using subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will 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 websites separate from one another.
