Home Forums CSS WHICH BETTER? – blog.[domain].com or [domain]/ ? Re: WHICH BETTER? – blog.[domain].com or [domain]/ ?

I don’t think it matters that much either. I can tell you that at CodePen, we have our blog at – the reason being that you can set different DNS records for different subdomains. This gives us the ability to host that blog at a totally different host than the root domain. So, for example, god forbid, if CodePen were to go down, the blog is still up and we can communicate through that.
