Subdomains as Subdirectory

How to Serve a Subdomain as a Subdirectory

Let’s say you have a website built on a platform that excels at design and it’s available at But that platform falls short at blogging. So you think to yourself, “What if I could use a different blogging platform and make it available at”

Most people would tell you that goes against how DNS and websites are supposed to work and to use a subdomain instead. But there are benefits to keeping your content on the root domain that we just don’t get with subdomains.

There’s a way to serve two different platforms on the same URL. And I’m going to show you the secret sauce so that, by the end of this article, we’ll make serve as

Why you’d want to do this

Because you’re here, you probably already know why this is a path to pursue. But I’d like to ensure you are here for the primary reason to do this: SEO. Check out these 14 case studies that show positive results when people move their subdomains over to subdirectories. You want your blog and your domain to share SEO value. Putting it on a subdomain would somewhat disconnect the two.

This was my reason, and wound up merging two platforms, where the main domain was on WordPress and the subdomain was on Drupal. But this tutorial is platform agnostic — it’ll work with just about any platform.

Web Development in 2022

Staying Updated With Web Development in 2022 – How Has It Changed?

Web development has come a long way from August 6, 1991, when the first website was created. It is a constantly evolving field where new problems, solutions, and concepts arise every other day. If you are in this field, you need to stay updated on the latest developments, innovations, and changes. Here’s how far web development has come in 2022.

Companies Want to Stay Ahead

Trends in any industry are always initiated by the stakeholders, and the stakeholders of web development with the most impact are the companies that commission websites and web-based apps. According to a recent Statista survey, 50% of the surveyed companies want to stand out from the competition by investing in digital trends and creating modern web-based applications.

Companies invest a huge amount of money in updating their websites and apps to gain a leading position in their industry and create value for their clients.

In response to these demands, the latest developments in Web development in 2022 have been the following.

Serverless Environment

The latest web development trend in 2022 is the use of serverless environments. As the name suggests, this strategy enables the developers to develop and deploy applications without using physical servers. This takes away a large portion of the cost and effort that is needed to maintain server infrastructure. It also eliminates the need for maintaining operating systems, and the developers can focus better on web development itself.
There still are servers in the serverless model, but they are taken care of by dedicated server maintenance companies

Design Tool Collaboration

5 ways no‑design tools encourage collaboration

These days, almost every company is a design company, but the need for qualified designers far exceeds the supply. To fill this gap, companies of all sizes are embracing no-design tools that let non-designers participate in the design process.

With no-design tools, collaboration between non-designers and designers becomes exponentially more productive and powerful. In fact, many would argue that the no-design movement — twin to the no-code movement — is essential for shaping the future of work.

Think about it: Would you rather receive an interactive mockup or a cryptic PowerPoint deck on what your client or colleague wants you to design? How much quicker can you get to the final version if you have a visual representation of what you’re aiming for from the get-go? How much back and forth can you avoid if you know how they picture their idea before you even start?

Designers are essentially trained problem-solvers, and we can all agree that increasing our problem-solving capacity as humans is a win-win for everyone. Here are five great reasons why.

✏️ Thanks to our friends at Uizard for sponsoring this blog post!

1. Empower visual thinking

Visual thinking helps to simplify the complex and move concepts from the abstract to the concrete. But when it comes to communicating big ideas, many non-designers lack the confidence to express themselves visually. No-design tools like Canva and Uizard have user-friendly “what you see is what you get”-style interfaces that flatten the steep learning curve of traditional design software.

What Is Meta All About

Meta rolls out a suite of new features and discovery tools for Facebook Live creators

Meta (formerly Facebook) today is introducing a number of Facebook Live updates that will allow creators to engage with fans during their live broadcasts, including new features like Polls, support for four-person co-broadcasting via the “Live With” feature, new commenting features, a new post format, support for adding links to broadcasts and “Live in Stories,” which allows creators to share their livestreams directly to Facebook Stories to improve their chances of discovery.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg yesterday teased these new additions and others still to come by posting to Facebook that more creator updates would be coming later in the week, after the launch of the online Stars website announced Tuesday. The new online store routes around the app stores’ commissions as it’s web-only, and is currently passing the savings on to fans by offering more Stars (the virtual items used to tip creators) for the same amount of money as you’d pay inside the Facebook mobile app.
