Is it possible to use a example.com/en as the Squarespace domain?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am looking at building a few sites for different regions and was wanting to use company.com/au for example, would this be the best way to create region specific sites that all share fairly similar domains?

Thanks,

Disclaimer: I don't know Squarespace well enough yet to to give the "good practices" approach, but I'm going to give some thoughts in general on this.

This is called localization. And it's actually quite a bit more complex than one realizes.

It's usually done using either 1 of these approaches:

1. "Oh this person is from x country, let's show them this completely different translated page"

2. "Oh this person is from y country, let's let our software swap out the text of different sections using a predefined translation file" (this is usually how it's done if you're building a website where you have a lot more control using Django for example).

I found this article, https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205809778-Creating-a-multilingual-site-in-Squarespace, it seems like Squarespace leans towards the 1st approach I told you, just building out 2 separate pages and then structuring the pages in a certain way so you get that `/en` , `/fr` etc structure.
