A subdomain is the section 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. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so on. The main benefit of employing a subdomain is that it can have an independent website and its own records, so you are 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 students aside from the primary school site. If you are using subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from each other.
