A subdomain is part of a web address that's under the main domain, for instance name.example.com. Technically, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain given that the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain could have its own web site and records and can even be hosted through a different provider if you wish to use some feature that isn't offered by your current provider. A good example for using a subdomain is if you have a business website along with an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. You can even have a forum where they can discuss the products and by employing subdomains as opposed to subfolders you'll avoid any risk of all websites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the website scripts. Keeping the sites separated is more secure in the event of a script security breach.
