Multisite store

The system allows you to use in your on-line store both site-specific objects, and global objects shared across all your sites. This approach gives you more flexibility and is highly effective in a multi-site environment, for example when hosting several E-commerce sites with the same content or when creating microsites.

Each multi-site environment website employing the Kentico E-commerce Solution has three groups of objects:

  • Objects with both site and global option include E-commerce Solution objects which you can use either as site-specific objects, or as site-specific objects together with global objects.
    You can find further details in Using site and global E-commerce objects.
  • Objects with only site or global option include E-commerce Solution objects which you can use only separately, i.e. either as site-specific objects, or as global objects.
    You can find further details in Using site and global E-commerce settings.
  • Special case objects include site-bound E-commerce Solution objects, for which there are no global object settings available.
    You can find further details in Multisite store special cases.
