As part of our ongoing LGS Consultant video training series we cover which one kind of URL is best to use: a stand alone domain or a sub-domain.
First off what are the differences between the two?
A domain name is what you typically see when you go to a website. For example, www.leadgensiteprofits.com. The ‘leadgensiteprofits.com’ is the domain name. A sub-domain is a prefix before the domain. Ex., chiropractor.leadgensiteprofits.com. In this case, ‘chiropractor’ is the sub-domain.
A common question we get from consultants who use our LGS Packages is:
“What should I use? A domain for each and every site I setup or can I use a sub-domain?”
The main reason consultants want to put all their sites on a sub-domain is to keep them all together under one primary domain as well as to keep costs down. But there is a big risk in doing that.
