    Setting up hostnames for multiple sites

    Hi,

    wondering what's the best approach and whether an even better approach exists when dealing with multiple sites, each having their own set of country/language combinations, yet both sites share some country/languages

    Explaining by example:

    Having site www.site-a.com and www.site-b.com, and some country/language sites

    www.site-a.com/be/en, www.site-a.com/fr/fr, but also www.site-a.com/no/nn

    Same structure for www.site-b.com/it/it, www.site-b.com/de/de but also www.site-b.com/no/nn

    Currently having 2 root nodes to which we assign www.site-a.com and www.site-b.com and a "Homepage" content node below the root node, for each of them we assign the hostnames /be/en, fr/fr, no/nn and it/it, de/de and no/nn

    And this is where it becomes tricky, as the no/nn (used in both sites site-a.com and site-b.com have the same "domain/hostname" assigned, which is not working...

    How can it be solved. One solution would be to assign all the hostnames at the root level, having

    www.site-a.com/be/en,

    www.site-a.com/fr/fr,

    www.site-a.com/no/nn and also

    www.site-b.com/it/it,

    www.site-b.com/de/de and

    www.site-b.com/no/nn

    and no longer assigning hostnames xx/yy on the Homepage content level.

    Do we have other options or do we have to go with assigning the hostnames only at the root level?

    Cheers,

    Dirk
