What is a subdomain?

A subdomain is a subsection of a main domain, in this format:

 

subdomain.maindomain.com

Sub domains allow clients to create completely separate websites with human-readable names without having to register multiple domain names.
 
For instance, a main website may be called yourdomain.com, but a subdomain may be forums.yourdomain.com.
