If I have a domain like http://example.com/ which would be the best to use for every new project I create. Would it be a subdomain http://exampleprojectname.example.com/ or a new domain http://exampleprojectname.com/ or a new folder http://example.com/exampleprojectname. Which one would be the best and good for seo.

The answer is simple. Do you want each project to perform well on their own (completely) or do you want support between them? If you want the project to compete completely on their own with little to no bleeding/support from one to the other, then you want a sub-domain. If they are to support each other and have some relative relationship, then you want a sub-directory.
