Accessing your site via sub-path
Back to Dashboard
Newsy also allows access to your site via sub-path from the domain you have connected. Let's assume you have a domain called hello.com and you want your site to be accessed via hello.com/world. In this case, the world is the sub-path, which you can specify in Domain Settings page.
Things to note
  • Only a single sub-path is allowed. That means you cannot specify hello.com/world/another.
  • Please make sure that sub-path cannot contain any special characters except hyphen -.
  • If you create second site with hello.com/my-second-site, you do not need to make any changes to your DNS settings (assuming you have already made the changes when you created your first one hello.com/world). The changes that are made to your DNS settings as outlined here are applicable at the domain level and does not consider any sub-path information.

The changes that are made to your DNS settings as outlined here are applicable at the domain level and does not consider any sub-path information.
  • An advantage of using sub-paths is if you want to connect a single domain to many different Newsy sites without having to change the DNS settings. A disadvantage of this approach might be that from various search engines' perspectives, it might be difficult to separate out each site if they share the same domain and it's uncertain how this will affect rankgins of your contents.
  • This approach also may not be suitable for any third-party services that require domain-level verification (e.g. Google Analytics, Google Search Console), all of which do not any sub-path level information.
We provide this sub-path feature as a tool for you to explore. All things considered (e.g. SEO, third-party tools etc), we strongly recommend that you connect each Newsy to its own domain (or at least its own sub-domain).
