Hosting A Sub-Site

A sub-site allows you to add a satellite website to your account, which is accessed via a separate domain but managed through the same  Synergy 8 Dashboard . 

A sub-site must be owned by the same company as your main (*primary) website. 

Hosting a sub-site costs an additional  $9.00 AUD per month.

Sub-sites are different to sub-domains.

Sub-site vs. Separate Accounts

Before you setup a sub-site, consider the points below to decide whether your site should be a sub-site, or a separate new account:

1. Sub-sites should only ever be "satellite" offerings, like products or services offered by the primary brand. It should represent the same company.

2. Sub-sites share a contact and sales database with your primary website.

3. The shopping cart, payment process, unsubscribe page, product catalogue and all other non-editable system pages need to run from the primary website domain, rather than the sub-site. 

4. Separating sub-sites from a main account in the future is usually quite difficult, and a manual process. It's not a good idea to setup a sub-site for a business entity that will need to be separated out at some point (eg. as part of a business sale).
