A Domain Group is a listing of all the domains and/or subdomains being monitored by Net-Results. Net-Results can monitor as many domains or subdomains as needed – but you must let the Customer Success team know about the domains so we can add them for you!
For example your website at www.MyDomain.com and your blog at blog.MyDomain.com may be monitored simultaneously within the same Domain Group. The visitors (undefined contacts) from these two domains may be grouped together into one Domain Group or kept separate each in their own individual Domain Group. You’ll be asked to choose how to group your domains whenever you add a new domain to your Net-Results account.
Things to consider when adding a new domain to your Net-Results account:
- Additional Segments will need to be created because Segments can only be applied to one Domain Group
- Additional Lead Scoring Rules will need to be created because Lead Scoring Rules can only be applied to one Domain Group
- Identical Reports and Dashboards will need to be created with the new Segments
Have multiple domain groups & not sure how to implement the above points? Schedule a training with the Customer Success team here!
Net-Results can monitor as many websites as you like and they do not have to share the same domain name however, they must all be sites that are under your legal control & they must have the Net-Results tracking beacon on the site!
There is no right or wrong answer to this question, it’s a matter of preference. Multiple Domain Groups are meant to keep data separate while giving customers one place to manage multiple business. Typically we recommend keeping domains and subdomains in the same Domain Group unless the two domains are completely unrelated and should be isolated.
You may change which domains are monitored under any Domain Group but note that changes to domain groupings only impact newly captured data. We are not able to retroactively apply changes in domain grouping.
