2 Domains for 2 sections of site

  • site1.business.com, site2.business.com. business.com is a landing page and clearly explains which to pick. All sites link to each other.

    Sorry Seacoast Web Design I didn’t receive a notification of your reply.

    I didn’t want to go down the sub-domain route. Both of these business’ even though related are being marketed separately, they both have their own domain.

    If I built this site without a cms I would be redirecting the navigation links to a completly different site, the user wouldn’t necessarily know as it looks similar, colours are different logo only slightly different but then I could focus seo on the two separate business’ easily.

    Surely this can be done with a wordpress site without having two separate installations. Or do I have to setup two installations and run it like I have suggested above?

    very awesome

    You can do it if you set up individual pages ans templates (not themes) for each site. Personally I’d set it up as multisite and run the two sites as different sites that you can still manage through a single admin area. There’s plugins around that can set up the multi-domains instead of the standard sub-domain/sub-folder choices. Your situation is pretty much exactly why multisite was created.

    Thanks catacaustic,

    I was looking into Multisite but couldn’t find anything to suggest that it would do exactly what I was trying to achieve.

    I’ll be installing Multisite 🙂

    Thanks again catacaustic.
