A subdomain is the section of the web address that is before a domain and you have almost certainly seen a lot of subdomains while exploring world wide web. As an example, many websites like Wikipedia have versions a number of languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The main benefit of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you are able to even host it on another server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for students aside from the primary school website. If you use subdomains as an alternative to subfolders, it will be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a certain site, not mentioning that it'll be more secure to have the sites separate from one another.
