Hi all,

How would I go about setting up multiple stores on different domains?

I seem to find a bit of information out there about setting up on a sub domain on the same domain as the root installation, but nothing about totally separate domain names?

I want my main store to be on http://www.DOMAINNAME.co.nz and then another one with different branding, products etc on http://www.DOMAINNAME2.co.nz.

How does this affect the search results on Google and SEO of http://www.DOMAINNAME2.co.nz being not a separate installation too?

Your urgent reply is much appreciated.

Thanks
Sheldon

just point both domains to the same install and then setup a new store in the opencart admin with the second domain name and configure.

as far as google is concerned it will be two separate stores/domains.

Hey Xsecrets,

Thanks for getting back to me, but what do you mean by "Point" I have heard a few people saying this, although I can't find exactly how to do this?

Thanks
Sheldon

It all depends on your hosting. some call it parked domains. whatever you have to do to make the new domain actually pull up stuff from the exact same folder as the old domain.
