Establishing a conference website

A conference website: An independent domain or a subsite?

When you need a conference website, it can be established as either an independent domain or as a subsite.

Independent domain:

  • You will get an address with the following structure:
  • The website will not be linked to other websites
  • In the beginning, the website will get a low ranking when using Google

Subsite for existing domain - e.g. or department website:

  • You will get an address with the following structure:
  • The subsite will be linked to the domain where it is placed. This makes it possible for example to reuse content from other conference websites.
  • The subsite will get a high ranking when using Google because of the Google credit already obtained by the domain.
