If we take the domain tolranet.com as an example, then forums.tolranet.com is a subdomain of tolranet.com as is support.tolranet.com and status.tolranet.com.

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.

All but the smallest of our shared web hosting plans allow the account owner to create a number of subdomains for use with the accounts main domain.
