Domains and Multiple Sites

Have multiple domain names? You can use them all with us easily.
The incredible flexibility that we give you with domain names, sub-sites, micro sites, SSL, and secure staff websites is unmatched.
Here is what you can do with EvoCloud:

  • Sub-Domains
    • Example - Create Sub-Domains for departments; police.yourcity.com , library.yourcity.com , etc. Point those sub-domains at pages in your site.
  • Domain Redirects
    • Example yourcitypolice.com points to the /police homepage in your website.
  • Sticky Domains - NEW AND GREAT!
    • These are a bit harder to explain, but they are the greatest thing to happen to domains in a CMS!
    • Creates multiple websites with their own domains within one main website.
    • Merge multiple websites together into one platform, with multiple domain name and multiple designs, all in one platform.
    • Using the police department example from the two previous domain examples, here is what you can do:
      • yourcitypolice.com is pointed at yourcity.com in our admin.
      • The redirect is set to be "Sticky" in our admin. Sticky domains are a special type of redirect.
      • The target is chosen for this new Sticky domain, in this case it is the /police page in the CMS, which would be the police department home page.
      • The police department home page uses a custom design template.
      • The police home page and interior pages have their own custom design.
      • The police templates use their own menus, thus "trapping" the visitor in the police section of the city's website.
      • To the end user, the yourcitypolice.com website is its own standalone website.
      • NO ADDITIONAL HOSTING FEES.
