A subdomain is the section of the web address that's before a domain name and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while browsing the Internet. For instance, many websites such as Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you can 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 aside from the main school site. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it's going to be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.

Subdomains in Hosting

They're going to be listed in the section where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can effortlessly keep tabs on every one of them.
