  • You can turn the directory commerce into a sub-domain by
    adding it as a sub-domain from your Control Panel.
  • Now you can access your E-Commerce as either domain.com/commerce OR commerce.domain.com

  • You have several domains domain.com, domain.org, domain.biz and domain.net.
  • domain.com is the domain of your website and you
    want to add domain.org, domain.biz and domain.net.

    additional domain(s).

Add-On Domains
