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


Nice tip there @chriscoyier that can be quite handy.

In my mind, having a specific feature of a website (blog, gallery, tool, etc.) on a subdomain, creates the illusion of it beeing somewhat separate. So I would expect maybe a special layout/navigation or different colors, something like that.
Just with a /blog or /gallery it feels more integrated as a subpage so I would expect it to have like same navigation, colors as the home page.

It would depend on the way you link to it as well. (seperate link/button or integrated in the main navigation.

I hate it when you click on a “page” in the main navigation on a whole different site flips open.
