Subdomain || Main Domain for Ecommerce - Recomendation
« on: July 05, 2018, 00:19:42 am »
Hello VirtueMart Gurus,

I have a question for all of you. A media content project has videos on it, and the shop owner (Me) would also like to sell items on it.
Is it in best practice to have the website with content just for content and then create a subdomain for the eCommerce platform?

In example:
Main Domain: Domain.com
Sub: Store.Domain.com

Or is it in good practice to have them in one domain, I am already running into small issues with user registration (Captcha) not showing up etc...
I don't mind committing either way however I can't for see future problems by doing one or another.

Thank you   :)

If your project is not really the same theme and design, it's perhaps better to use a subdomain. But in this case you need that user register in the subdomain too and you need another database.
If you only sell some items, , the investment may not be useful to have 2 website to maintain. But this is a personal choice

Thank you Studio 42  8),

This has answered my questions. I will have it in the same domain, since its only about 5 products tops.

Thanks again.
