2 languages under 2 sub-domains under 1 principal domain name

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to build a multilingual website, I'm thinking of paying for 2 separate websites and I want to configure them under 2 subdomains as follows:

en.website.com (Main site, default language)
fr.website.com (Copy of the main site, secondary language)

My idea is to finalize the full English version under en.website.com, then go duplicate the full site in one click, then go configure it and translate it into French under fr.website.com.

Here are my questions:
1 - Is it possible to configure the main domain website.com to the main site en.website.com?
2 - Is it possible to configure the secondary site under the fr.website.com subdomain?
3 - Does Google consider this structure SEO Friendly?

In the end, I want to have 2 sites under 2 subdomains under 1 main domain name.

Thanks
