A subdomain is simply a lower domain within the domain name hierarchy. Therefore tolranet is also a subdomain of the toplevel domain (TLD) com.

A subdomain can point to the same server as the parent domain or a separate server but in both cases it is normal for the content on the subdomain to be independent from the parent, a separate site if you will.
