A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions in various languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have a separate site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on a different server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for pupils in addition to the primary school website. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it's going to be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it will be more safe to have the sites separate from each other.
