Domain Out of the Box

  1. MULTIPLE DOMAINS Domain allowed Leica to host multiple “sites” under one Drupal installation.
  2. CONTENT SHARING With Domain Module sites admins have the ability to assign content to certain domains.
  3. SINGLE SITE FOR ADMINS Domain alleviates the need for admins to login to multiple sites. Clear one cache and run DB updates once. Page 19 | Multi-Site Vs Domain: A Commerce Case Study
  4. CONTENT ACCESS Domain allows for access to content to be set per domain. Great for keeping Country editors on their own site.
