So you want to start an online store with Volusion, but you already have a website that you’ve built a community on, such as a brand site or a blog? It’s possible to run your store as a “subdomain,” so you maintain your existing audience and all SEO cred you’ve already built with Google.
How It Works
First, you'll need to create either an A record or a CNAME record for your subdomain. You'll create this record wherever you host your DNS, then point it to either the IP address or the temporary servertrust address for your Volusion store.
On your existing website (i.e. www.yourstore.com), you will want to include a link in your navigation, and maybe elsewhere, that will direct traffic to your Volusion store’s subdomain (store.yourstore.com). When customers click the link and land on your Volusion store, it will look as though they never left your original site. And you won’t have to sacrifice your hard-earned SEO ranking.
You can easily expand your empire from an existing website or a blog to a Volusion store, by creating a subdomain. Give your audience an exciting shopping experience with your Volusion store, built right into the site they already know and love.
